Vancouver, January 10 (RHC)-- In Canada, indigenous leaders issued an eviction notice to the workers of a pipeline company seeking to build a $6.6 billion gas pipeline through First Nations territory in British Columbia.
In a press release, five clans of the Wet’suwet’en Nation said Coastal GasLink had violated the nation’s trespassing law and “has bulldozed through our territories, destroyed our archaeological sites, and occupied our land with industrial man-camps. … The ongoing criminalization of our laws by Canada’s courts and industrial police is an attempt at genocide.”
Earlier, Coastal GasLink workers reportedly complied with the eviction notice and vacated the worksites. But Reuters reports construction of the pipeline has seen resumed.
