When it Comes to these Protesters across Canada, They are being misled. All 20 first Nations communities, Chiefs, Council , Hereditary Chiefs and community members do support the Pipeline. Yes they have all been working on this for years, Hurdle after hurdle, they have did all the consultations. twice.
Protesters are saying “Consultations are not Consent” , But these protesters at #Wetsuweten do not have the consent from the majority of all the 20 communities, and they do not speak for the Chief, Council, and majority of Hereditary Chiefs in Wet’suwet’en.
These protests are illegal , and that is why the RCMP are getting involved. The RCMP are protecting the real people of Wet’suwet’en , and removing these illegal protesters.
The pipelines have been approved by all Bands up in Wet’suwet’en . these small group of protesters are going against the will of all the FN Communities, against the members of those bands, and against the majority of Hereditary Chiefs
Witset Nation, Wet’suwet’en, Councillor Clement Mitchell says if you’re not from the local area you should not be involved in the protests.
