Unis’tot’en Camp is an indigenous re-occupation of Wet'suwet'en land in northern BC, Canada. The camp's log cabin, traditional pit house, and forest permaculture garden sit squarely in the middle of the pipeline route to the port of Kitimat. The campers are blocking the way for two proposed gas pipelines and the Enbridge Northern Gateway tarsands pipeline.
Volunteers are needed now and all year round
The camp is building permaculture gardens, a traditional pithouse, and a new bunkhouse in the path of the pipelines.

Four years ago, grassroots members of the Wet'suwet'en people of northern BC (western Canada) learned about the oil and gas pipeline projects being planned to cross their territory without permission.They set up a "soft blockade" to keep out the corporations and started building a camp and permanent homes in the pipeline route.
The camp is 1000 km north of Vancouver, BC. A large log cabin and a wall tent house the defenders and volunteers. More homes are under construction. The oil and gas representatives and police have made several forays into the territory, but so far they have avoided starting a confrontation.
