Since July 2010, the Unis’tot’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation have been successfully blockading 7 oil and gas pipelines from encroaching on their traditional territories.




Asked what the impact of the pipelines might be if they go through, she answers without hesitation, “Well, there won’t be any impacts, because they’re not coming through”. With a sheer and profound determination to defend her people, Freda speaks here about the importance of defending Wet’suwet’en lands and the Morice river, threats from RCMP police and industry, and also responds to the recent decision by the BC provincial government to oppose the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline.
