Demand Coastal GasLink Stop Work on Indigenous Archeological Site

September 25, 2021

Coastal GasLink bulldozed an ancient site on Wet’suwet’en Territory. They obtained a permit from the BC Oil and Gas Commission without their Free, Prior, and Informed Consent, despite the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples being legislated by the provincial government in 2018.

Call the BC Oil and Gas Commission: Demand accountability, revoke the site alteration permit and issue a stop work order!

Coastal GasLink is destroying a sacred archeological site on Gidimt’en Territory. They obtained the permit without consultation or consent. We demand a stop work order immediately and for all artifacts to be returned. This place is part of an ancient village site, Ts’elkay Kwe Ceek was verified in testimony during the Delgamuukw court case. They are literally wiping us off our territory.
