The following video showing the CIRG (Community-Industry Response Group) is very disturbing. All signs indicate yet another invasion of Wet’suwet’en lands.
RCMP ENTER COYOTE CAMP
The CIRG (Community-Industry Response Group) have been into Coyote Camp everyday. Yesterday they came in and were violent towards our Yintah security, joked about genocide and that they can’t wait to see it on social media.
We also have reports from the ground that the officers are hiding their identities, not showing or giving badge numbers and from the video we can see are not wearing masks or practicing social distancing.
They are blatantly threatening violence against our people and clearly do not care who sees or knows. They relish it. This is what these CIRG officers live for. Remember they applied to be a part of this group specifically designed to remove Indigenous people out of the way of industry. The same group that are invading at Fairy Creek and Tiny House Warriors frontlines.
Tomorrow is day one of the call out for a week of Solidarity Action! Please organize where you are, come to camp, make noise and raise hell!

Update from Chief Woos posted on Yintah Access Instagram Yesterday
“Dinï ze’ Woos ceremonially welcomes supporters at “Coyote Camp” and speaks of the history of this territory.
Our people have been protecting our territory and children for thousands of years. We are stronger than CGL and the RCMP. We have our ancestors with us, the yintah, and Wedzin Kwa support us.
“There might be momements where you will be feeling a lot of fear because these people will be coming with guns pointed at you. But always remember our ancestors will be standing right beside you.” -Dini ze’ Woos
We are ready. We ask you to join us. For more info go to yintahaccess.com
Organize. Resist. Win.
Wedzin Kwa belongs to our children.
For over 50 years, Wet’suwet’en children were taken from the land, from their families, and from Wedzin Kwa to attend residential schools. These “schools” were not to empower us, but to take the Indian, to take the Wet’suwet’en, out of the child. Many did not return and those who survived have fought for our right to all that we had been robbed of – land, language, culture, pride. Today, we continue to face state violence from governments and industry who still want our land to themselves. Their plans to eradicate us however, have failed and we are still here!
Every day we remember. We carry that pain, that strength, and we work to rebuild our pride, to rebuild our nations and reconnect with our lands.
On September 30th, we came together in a day of remembrance to honour the children, to remind ourselves that we will never give up/be defeated.”
