RCMP planning mass arrest of indigenous activists under Bill C-51, supporters warn

unistoten

The RCMP are preparing to carry out a mass arrest operation against the indigenous Unist’ot’en Clan of the Wet’suwet’en Nation in northwestern BC under Harper government’s Bill C-51 labelling as terrorists First Nations activists exercising their Aboriginal Title and Rights to protect their lands from oil and gas development, according to a joint statement by the groups supporters.

The Conservatives’ controversial anti-terror act criminalizes protests that may be seen as interfering with ‘the economic or financial stability of Canada’ and opponents of the bill had long feared that it would be used to stifle opposition to oil pipelines aggressively promoted by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The RCMP have made a number of visits to the Unist’ot’en as well as other First Nations leadership regarding the Unist’ot’en camp, located on the shores of the Wedzin Kwah and mouth of the Gosnell Creek, tributaries to the Skeena, Bulkley, and Babine Rivers.

The activists have been protesting against the proposed Enbridge Pipeline and Pacific Trails Pipeline (Chevron), which are planned to cross the river at the exact points of our Pithouse, and Permaculture Garden that was built on the Unist´ot´en Territory of Talbits Kwah.

Today over fifty individuals and organizations have issued a letter to the provincial government, federal government and RCMP to express support for the Unist’ot’en Camp.

“The courageous stand taken by the Unist’ot’en and their supporters must not be criminalized by the RCMP nor targeted by government,” states Maude Barlow, National Chairperson of the Council of Canadians. “Through the draconian Bill C51, the federal government is attempting to brand people defending the land and water as ‘security threats.’ The Unist’ot’en are heroes, while the real threat is this government destroying the planet and economy.”

Signatories to this letter include the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, First Nations Summit, BC Assembly of First Nations, Greenpeace Canada, Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 718, Idle No More, Council of Canadians, Earthkeepers: Christians for Climate Justice, Defenders of the Land, David Suzuki, Unifor’s Western Director Joie Warnock, Elizabeth May, Naomi Klein.

“Why is the Senior Command of the RCMP so hell bent on deliberately provoking a conflict between themselves and the Indigenous Peoples of British Columbia?” Grand Chief Stewart Phillip of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs asked. “Are they taking these instructions from Premier Christy Clark or Prime Minister Harper?”

Since 2009, the Unist’ot’en have maintained a camp by Wedzin Kwah (Morice River) that is blocking seven pipelines that do not have Unist’ot’en consent to use their land.

On August 15th, 2015, in accordance with Wet’suwet’en laws, the Unist’ot’en Declaration was unanimously signed by five Unist’ot’en chiefs and affirms the continuous governance of the Unist’ot’en.

The letter notes, “We denounce any attempt by the federal government, provincial government or RCMP to interfere in the rights of the Unist’ot’en to occupy, manage or maintain their lands…We expect any and all actions taken by the federal and provincial government, industry and policing agencies to be consistent with the Unist’ot’en Declaration and the jurisdiction of the Unist’ot’en Clan.

    Did anyone really believe that Bill C-51 was about fighting Jihadi terrorists?

      No it wasn’t it was to suppress the native people

      • Almost anonymous says:

        I am sure the natives will bear the brunt since I believe all the Jihadists left for Mexico last year when The Harp demanded their submission to C-51 and his own private god. Natives have much more support than The Harp ever had or will have…could be a time to either stick your neck out or keep yer head down…as you wish.

          • AcaJoe says:

            Things are far from cool with the cartels,to insinuate otherwise show the true lack of facts you have about Mexico. Cartels are not Robin Hood, they are more like ISIS,they have taken over a country as well. They rule communities with impunity and terror. Cartels are terrorists, though they have no code of morals or ethics to twist, so it is truly a No Man’s Land. If the parents have the $$ to send their kids away, then they do.

        • If FN gets raided, I believe FN all across Canada will shut down most of the industries, and support from union organizations, and the public will come. Harper will be in a mite of trouble. The law says FN’s own the lands they claim. There can be no encroachment, intrusion or infringement on aboriginal traditional territory if there is no consent from the First Nations.

        In addition, according to the Supreme Law of the Land, Turtle Island, nee Canada Inc., any and all that threatens Native Peoples Directly and/or indirectly, even in the slightest as portrayed by the Supreme Court of Canada can and will be ignored, namely because the Crown of Canada maintains that there are no derogatory laws on record that refers to Native Peoples directly or indirectly, then that being true then Bill C-51 can be legally ignored and is ineffective, unenforceable by any means created by anyone or entity. It’s Harper intent to single out Native Peoples just when forces from a foreign land are being delivered to the media for people of Canada to sacrifice Native Peoples for the sake of imaginary safety that the Crown of Canada is suppose to guarantee. So, according to Crown of Canada further attacks the Indigenous Peoples with Bill C-51 inline with the creation of and enacting in the 1800′s with the bringing in of the Indian Act. Only after Harper single-handedly Legalises “GENOCIDE” that Harper now commits further acts of Genocide as defined by the United Nations. It is times like this that keep repeating itself in the interest of starting , yet again, another war, but where? Here in Canada Inc.? Directed completely at The Real People of North America indigenous to this Land, Turtle Island, assigned to the Native Peoples by no other than The Creator, Himself, God for our benefit and pleasure forever and ever.

      • expose says:

        terrorism also includes organized crime as an organized crime family fits the bill of a terrorist organization and engages in violent acts and kills hundreds of people daily by drugs etc. so why is so much emphasis and time wasted on protesters who protest peacefully when the organized crime families in southern ontario along with biker gangs and other need alot of attention and time from RCMP to nail? the rcmp should not be dealing with matters of peaceful protesters it should be the oil companies paying for their own private security to deal with the situation and in the civil courts to amicably resolve the complaints of the protesters. So a terrorist bill that is designed to go after the protesters is a fraudulent bill and not keeping with the mandate of the rcmp and csis to protect the canadian public from the terrorist including the organized crime terrorist!!

      As was just mentioned by a caller to CFAX 1070 radio in Victoria: Harper guaranteed China an uninterrupted supply of oil. Harper will stop at nothing to fulfill that contractual obligation.

      Where is Bob Rae former premier of Ontario to protect the rights of the indians . He is up in northern ontario with the Indians and the Ring of Fire project that involves the mining of a mineral that will bring in multi millions of dollars both in the mining and infrastrucure of roads and airports and commercial as the mineral is mined. A fort McMurray in Ontario.

      Is he anywhere to be seen where there are peaceful protests or blockades. I think these Indians tribes need some good political backing. Or is it that Bob Rae is only where the money is and not for the real interests of all Canadian Indians?

      I cant wait until the Ring of Fire starts up as we see those construction industry people with ties to the maffia getting their dirty fingers into that multi million dollar projects.

      Maybe the RCMP can be investigating those links instead of getting involved in civil matters because those links are big and very complexing to follow so require lots of manpower.

      The rcmp should spend all their manpower in finding the links of mobsters into the construction industry.

      Modern Treaties:
      *All land claims in Canada and those in the BC Treaty Process are based on the mistaken premise that Canada owns the land it is situated on
      *Where Indians have not surrendered ownership, legal “Title to ‘Crown land’” does not exist
      *It is a fiction of Canadian Colonial Law
      *It is based on the RACIST assumption that European interests are automatically given priority to Indian interests as Indians are uncivilized.
      *Indians feel obliged to go along with historically false idea that they must make a claim against the state to gain ownership of lands that they have always possessed
      *One reason that the state has been able to impose its racist, anti-historical view is simply cultural arrogance
      *the state still negotiates from a position of strength based on its false claim to morality, justice and authority.
      *Aboriginal Peoples have”The right to exclusive use and occupation of land” is “INALIENABLE” except to the crown. Note: please look up definition of INALIENABLE and see how this is an oxymoron.

      The point I’m making is that an Educated Indian is a feared Indian. Learn the Law, exercise your power, and rise up. You cannot combat ignorance with ignorance. May the creator do for you what you cannot do for yourself my friend <3

      You are either a poorly thought-out troll or a fool.

      The money that goes towards First Nations is actually derived from a trust that is not at all a part of public monies. No taxes go to pay for the services that are a guaranteed right as agreed to by the Government and the First Peoples in the treaties and agreements that were established in good faith. Or do you not think that a government should live up to their agreements, and can shed its responsibilities at the drop of a hat?

      You obviously do not stand for “progress”. Your attitudes are regressive and are based around a stereotype that is wrong and outdated.

      Aboriginal people actually contribute billions of dollars to the economy, as stated by TD Bank. There is also the economic advantage that First Peoples bring to Canada because of cultural tourism and the showcasing of our heritage. We don’t need your pennies, we have dollar bills.

      • Anonymous says:

        Where does the money in this trust fund come from? It’s not self regenerating or else someone dropped the ball and all of our tax revenues could be put into a trust and the country would be out of debt in no time. So where does the money come from…used car sales in Ottawa?

        If most of B.C. is unceded territory and therefore not covered by treaty, why is the Federal Gov. paying out to these tribes? Seems counter intuitive to me when most of all First Nations (nice elitist title by the way) don’t even recognize themselves as being Canadian and in fact most would spit at being called so, yet the Feds still look after them year after year. No FN’s I know spit on all the benefits they can get their hands on though.

        Are FN’s really that hard done by these days? Are they prevented from practicing their ‘traditional ways’ apart from warring with one another and the killing and slavery that used to take place. Are FN’s not granted the right to vote for a voice in all levels of politics? Are FN’s segregated from the rest of society? Are FN’s living longer and healthier lives thanks to access to the medical system? Are they not allowed to hunt and fish every day of the year to provide for their families and tribes? Are they not granted certain tax exemptions while living on reserves? Has the past not been recognized and apologized for monetarily and publicly more times than not? Does this country forbid them from interacting with the rest of society? Does it forbid them from getting a public or post secondary education? Are they not allowed to enter into agreements with businesses to allow them to go ahead provided they are granted special dispensation through economic incentives as well as biased hiring promises (mines that are forced to have a disproportionate amount of FN’s workers to the actual percentage of the population)? Have they not benefited from having access to certain ‘European’ inventions (rifles, trucks, electricity, engineered homes with central heating systems, chainsaws, etc…).

        As a Canadian, of long ago European decent (which I no longer even think about unless asked), I’m not the only one who is exasperated when it comes to ‘FN’s want this’ or ‘FN’s want that’. Truth is, it could have been a lot better in the past, but it could have also been a lot worse for FN’s (the Spaniards could have settled Canada and we all know how they treated conquered peoples). We are no longer in the past, we are in the here and now in a society that’s tired of having to appease the ‘victims’ when there are no more ‘victims’. It’s great people care about the environment, but one’s skin colour should have little bearing on the weight of the argument. If blockades go up, it’s in contravention to the law and I’m sure that’s when c-51 will be enforced. Damage property and c-51 will be enforced. Say Colonial law is not your law, think twice before wanting your ‘traditional’ laws settling things! If FN’s care so much, do what the Chilcotin did and are still doing and go to court and get the land claim settled. Don’t rely on the old treaty negotiation system that no longer exists because too many corrupt people were a part of it (FN’s and others alike) and were using it as an opportunity to make a career out of it when their jobs were to come to terms with each other in a timely manner. More wasted tax dollars.

        I’ve tried to keep this as respectful as possible and I saw the previous post that didn’t. Just remember the population bias in BC alone is about 5% FN’s to 95% of other ethnicity who identify as Canadians. The 95% is not going anywhere any time soon, so we’d all better learn to get along before there’s an escalation both sides will live to regret. If you think this is racist, well I’m sorry, but it’s a view many of the 95% have concerning this problem in our country. Many are sick and tired of the ‘you owe us because we’re victims’ mentality when all the opportunities out there are the same if not better for FN’s.

        • Geri says:

          I’d like to take the time to educate you, Anonymous. But I will only respond with a few clarifications. I would suggest that you and all others who are “tired of the First Nation’s idea that they are owed because we’re victims mentality” read the Indian Act. Firstly, medical care…there is a piece of legislation called Jordan’s Principle. It is supposed to ensure a child’s medical problems are taken care of first and then the Federal and Provincial governments worry who’s responsibility that care is. Jordan’s Principle came about because a little boy name Jordan, a First Nation boy, died after 5 years in hospital, because the provincial and federal governments couldn’t agree on who would be responsible for the cost of his care. That little boy was 5 years old and never ever went home. That would not happen to any other kid! Then there is Shannen’s Dream. A 15 year old girl who died in a car accident on her way to school – 300 miles from her home because there were no secondary schools in her northern home! She attended primary to grade 8 in trailers built over contaminated land. There were children in that community that had never been in a real school. So are FN prevented from getting an education? You bet! Are FN prevented from leaving their communities? You bet! Look at Shoal Lake. Do you turn your tap on when you want water? Many FN communities have no running water and have been on boil water advisories for 15 and 20 years! Do you have faith that your Last Will and Testament will be upheld? Read the Indian Act…the wishes of my will can be overturned by the Minister of Indian Affairs.

          I have intentionally replied with respect. It is unfortunate that many will not read this in the context with which it is written. Lastly, Anonymous, that fund you talk about? The money for that fund comes from the resources that are on Crown Land…where FN live! And then there is Fiduciary Responsibiity…that is another topic.

      First of all, it is the native’s who supported us as we are on their land. We have been the drain as we are destroying the very land they share with us. Secondly, their alcoholism was a gift to them by us and it was perpetuated by all the abuse at residential schools when we tried to erase their identities. The problem continues today fuelled by a lack of government support; community and educational funding; support and treatment programs or even a simple duty of care shown by our “leaders”. They try to protect our land and the very air your dumbass breathes while our government wants to eliminate them as they stand in the way of larger dirty oil projects and profits….profits for the 1%. Go ahead and support the very people who will be the reason there soon will no longer be new generations of dumbasses. Best part of all, they count on your complete stupidity to make it happen. They actually laugh at you as you drank every drop of their Kool-aid. Way to go!! Some ants are just meant to be ruled.

They will protest until the pipeline companies finally give them the dollar amount that they want. They claim to be the environmentists and care about the land and water and animals. Yet the poach and kill female moose and only take the meat that’s easiest to carve off instead of taking all the meat. Plus the put there nets all the way across the river so no fish can get by mean while saying sport fishermen whom take and eat there catches and not sell them for booze money.

We have so many resources, so much wealth and people like you are willing to throw it all away for the sake of the almighty dollar. I can’t believe that their are still ignorant people like you who believe the natives of this land were savages. He who pilfers the land is more savage than any man, as we rely on our land to provide the basic necessities of life. The natives at least could understand that. Stand in line for your rations asshole, cause one day you may endure suffering as did they. Unless your at the very top of it all? Then your nothing but scraps for the dogs. Alcohol was brought here and fed to the natives so they would do the bidding of greedy assholes who valued money more than freedom, justice, beauty and love. Ill say a prayer for you today as you have lost your way, I’ll say a prayer for you today that you will wake up one day and see all humans as equal, and have pain in your heart for the struggle of our native Americans. For one who cannot feel the pain in others must surely be afraid to see his own true self. May you conquer your fears and learn to love unconditionally. For there lies true wealth!

    Same thing happening all over again. When the whitemen came here, the natives shared with them. But they wanted it all. They began taking the land and resources, moving the natives onto reserves to get them out of the way. They turned the resources into money and put it into their bank accounts. Now they call it taxpayer money. Today, the whites still benefit from that theft. So who is really getting something for nothing?

    I want to first acknowledg that FN are a critical part of what makes Canada such an amazing country and I love and respect so many of them and there traditions. I’ve lived in NWT, BC, Alberta. I grew up having a number of FN friends and noticed the benefits that they received that even though our families where as equally poor and basically the only difference between us was the color of our skin. Now someone explain to me how we as Canadian’s in this day in age give one set of people money and not another based on the colour of their skin or heritage? I’ve herd the argument that its because of a treaty we need to uphold, but at what point is that treaty irrelevant? Just like how laws change to meet the needs and demands of citizens. Trust me I’m not saying I want my fair share or I expect the government pumping out money to my children because I have a deep appreciation for the value of work and the character it builds and I know that if the government is giving away money it means I’ve taken from someone else. Then as far as the issue of this oil pipelines I am a fly fisherman and an outdoor enthusiasts who respects what the good lord gave us to enjoy but also know that everything from the car I drive to my fishing rod and clothing has some connection to oil. Therefore the only way I see a good solution for both sides is that we work together and take all appropriate precautions to protect our beautiful country but just as important we need to get Canadians back to work and oil and gas is the obvious solution to that!

    • Geri says:

      Forgive me, Mixed Opinion, but I have to respond to your post. What were FN children or families given that you were not? If you were equally poor, your family would have been entitled to welfare or what was referred to as relief back in the day. Medical and education were given to people of either colour.

    This is such anti-C51 nonsense. There’s literally zero connection to anything related to C-51 laws other than the title itself which is based entirely on speculation and fear.

I saw several high profile protests around the Pan Am Games events and everything was normal.

    What these people really need to be concerned over is the 250 million dollars in new police officers that Thomas Mulcair just committed to. More cops = more lone wolf cops who may lose their tempers.

    Last but not least, that quote about C51 law may very well be made up. I’ve read much of the bill and can’t recall that line in it at all. So much fear mongering and lying going on about this bill now. It’s reached the point where people I know think they are being watched and can no longer download movies, etc. It’s nonsensical conspiracy crap.

    The harper government always wanted to take away the rights of all Canadians as have all Canadian governments since the repatriation of the B N A [British North America Act] when P.E.T. changed this free and democratic country into this oxymoron of a socialist democracy bill C-51 is just another in a long list of bills to deny all Canadians their rights both fundamental and legal in accordance with the charter of rights and freedoms .These bills are against the administration of law and justice and should be denied by the courts. this however will never be done as the courts and the government got into bed with each other and as many of our politicians are members of the bar association and all lawyers and judges must be members to practice law therefore they would be in a conflict of interest to go against each other . I say stand up for all native Canadians no matter their cultural backgrounds it is soon to be a terrorist act to believe act to believe in freedom and the Canadian government is working hard to make this come about . they use the rcmp as their personal army. remember Ipperwash. go idle no more. full support for all activists for canadians rights our government is the terrorist organization.

And before everyone else started showing up in this country they lived a peaceful existence. They hunted and fished and shared all of there game with each other. Our lands where untouched by toxins and structures and oil our air was pure and so were waters. They had no need to fight for there land or there sacred hunting grounds. We shouldn’t have to fight to keep the little pieces of our land that was left to us untouched. If not wanting our land polluted is barbaric then I do not want civilization.
    On one last note I work I pay taxes and I am only one of thousands of natives who do so. It is people like you have corrupted our beautiful country our home. I really hope you do look into your history so that you might be enlightened about our rich roots which is what is moving this tribe to stand up for what they believe in.

      Thousands of years ago, we all lived in tribes in Africa. Fun fact: we don’t have a time machine. My family immigrated here generations ago (not unlike yours did based on the SCIENCE that we likely all came from Africa).
      As I was born here, this is my fucking country too now. Sorry not sorry.
      Oh, and we need oil and gas to pay for things you alllll like having – hospitals, roads, schools, all that cash for your treaties!

    im sure this is just another money grab from the aboriginals. Stewards of the land? Fuck off. Last time I drove by your reserve, all I saw were dead cats on the road and litter.
    Get your Act together and grow up you spoiled brats. You are rude and racist and working near a reserve, I’m actually fucking sick of being shit on by your people who think it’s okay to be a fucking asshole to me because I’m white.
    You know what would be funny? If white people left Canada. I give natives a week until they beg us to come back to give them more free money. Fuck you, you ignorant spoiled brats. We need the fucking pipeline to keep supplying you with the cash money you constantly demand.

    It is my understanding that First Nations have the numbers to affect the outcomes of an estimated 50 ridings in the Federal election. If history is still a predicater of future action I assume First Nation peoples will once again refuse the opportunity to express their concern at the ballot box. NOW that’s a shame.

    It would be more productive to just ignore the people posting negative and racist comments. Didn’t read them all but i see how it infuriates people and things get totally off topic. Just sayin’….This article was an eye opener to me. I am uneducated in the on goings of politics….maybe it’s time i payed attention! I really hope and pray our government does not go through with what is reportedly going into motion.

    This bill is to suppress everyone who wants a voice.

      As a longshoreman and supporter to abolish BILL C 51 and C 24 i support the first nations – top to bottom – ask any conservative goof ball if an intruder took over their household kicked them off their land raped their children, destroyed their culture,, and removed their civil rights, conservatives are inbreeds from hitler
      and the nazi in my opinion – how can any decent person believe in corporate wealth when the poor bleed in our streets. NDP is the path to eliminate the harper government – im opposed to bill c 51 and 24 my arms are around the first nations

    I wonder how many of you that are opposed to C-51 actually wrote your MP, petitioned or did ANYTHING to make your voice in the matter known. If you decided to do nothing, you’re part of the problem.

    My heart hurts from what is going on. Harper is a horrible politician! He is selling Canada for nothing. The people that have protected the land are getting odd cancers from all the byproduct of making oil.
    Why do we need a pipeline in the first place?
    Oh that’s right, Canada cannot refine their own oil. Perhaps, the oil is going to drop and so is the dollar. Then America can take our fresh water sell it back to us, double the price.
    I’m scared for what may happen. I am glad the natives are protecting the land but will be awful to be arrested and have a criminal record only to be marginalized more.
    I was in Texas 3 years ago and they are all set up for the pipeline. The ppl that hold the power have just been pretending that standing up will make a difference. I am not sure if there is anyway to stop this. Maybe, getting the government to reallocate people to decrease the cancers and birth defects. But water always trickles down stream so we will contaminate our water to China to buy more stuff we don’t need. (Ok deep breath). What can we do as the people?
