Solidarity all the way! Implement UNDRIP now. Land back.
Indigenous people have the rights to that land and Canada needs to honor their treaties and stop insisting on destroying the environment and the lives of Indigenous people for profit.
Indigenous people’s rights and sovereignty must be respected, especially when it comes to destruction of the environment. Biodiversity loss extends not only to habitats and biomes, but also to the soil, where the microorganisms that create the nutrients needed for plants to thrive live. The Indigenous peoples of Canada have taken care of this land for millennia before colonizers landed here. The land is theirs, the treaty that the Canadian government signed was broken, and therefor the land should go back to the aboriginal population there. Stop this violence against the native population of Canada.
I wholeheartedly support this statement of solidarity.
Where there is need I will give.
I stand in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en chiefs, Unist’ot’en Camp, and the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) protests at Tyendinaga.
These people have protected their lands & ecosystems from destruction since before the coming of Europeans. This sustainable policy cannot continue unless their rights are respected & in the face of climate breakdown, not to do so imperils all humanity.
This is a beautiful idea. I worship forest and nature. Thank you for standing and defending those very things. I was raised to honour the First Nations people, I still do. Thank you.
Stop the violence. Stop the genocide.
Upholding the human rights, sovereignty, and dignity of Indigenous Peoples is the right and just thing to do, and also the only way forward to stewardship and preservation of the biosphere and all life on Earth.
Standing in solidarity!
I agree to all of the above mentioned.
We stand together!
It’s their land, stop destroying it.
I believe that the colonial occupation and exploitation of Wet’suwet’en lands, and all other unceded lands, is illegal. The RCMP should leave!
We also have a right to support Indigenous Peoples through in-person discussion and through online media.
“If evil thou knowest, as evil proclaim it, And make no friendship with foes.”
You shoved us onto tiny slivers of half-fertile land after tormenting our populations for centuries, and you’ve been trying to bully us into giving those back ever since. Trudeau may have tricked the First Nations at his election, but he’s an idiot if he thinks he’ll get away with it for long.
May justice for indigenous people prevail!
Gods be with you!
I think these people have a right to their own land, and we have no right to take that from them.
Colonialist maps lie! Wet’suwet’en is a sovereign nation!
None of us is free until we are all free. All peoples must be respected.
Thank you for protecting Mother Earth, and our water. xx
I support the protesters.
Indigenous land should be managed by Indigenous people. They know what is best for their own land and people.
Be strong, brothers and sisters. We are with you.
Indigenous people’s rights matter. They are land and water defenders, and their actions are noble in the face of destructive forces. Canada needs to show respect and care about the people, and clean water, land, and air.I stand in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en traditional chiefs. Get the violent RCMP off their territory now!
This nation was built in stolen land and genocide, we have a duty to protect those who are still rolling in the wake of our atrocities. Defend and protect their land and empower these people to continue their cultural practices.
I am a Canadian citizen on unceded lands. I stand with the First Nations people of Canada against the systemic abuse they have endured for centuries.
May our strength of solidarity give strength where it is needed. May the gods protect and restore what once was and should always be. Blessed be
I stand in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en and Tyendinaga people of this land and all Indigenous people everywhere. Justice must prevail.
We all are treaty people, bound by the agreements of our forefathers. Our Canadian Government is acting above the law, and is abusing its powers without the consent of its citizens nor the consent of the First Nations people. Therefore, Canada has by its own admission become a dictatorship and has militarized its economy. This must be stopped. I support all First Nations peoples in their efforts to defend their rights and laws.

I stand with the indigenous people of the world
I support the Wet’suwet’en and indigenous peoples.
Nia:weh. Thank you.
Governments should listen to their people, not corporations.
I stand with Wet’suwet’en
Bless You and Bless Our Mother!!
I stand with the Wet’suwet’en!
We’ve already done so much damage to the Indigenous Peoples of this land. Please listen to what they’re telling you and avoid causing even more suffering.
I heartily endorse the above statement.
Indigenous rights and sovereignty matter.
I fully believe that this country was built on stolen land and the fact that many indigenous women are still going missing/are being murdered in this day and age is beyond atrocious. More so, these women often never get media attention or their cases are never properly looked into. We should be working to protect the people whose ancestors were here before us. This is their ancestral home, not ours. We did not choose to come here, but we can make a change for the better.
This is wrong and hundreds of legal professionals agree, but wait, so does the Supreme Court of Canada, so what’s going on here? RCMP and CGL off the land. Free, prior and informed consent were required and not appropriately given. It’s time for true Reconciliation.
I stand with the indigenous people.
