Decolonial Solidarity Moncton - No More Dirty Banks

Start: Saturday, November 05, 202211:15 AM

Decolonial Solidarity Moncton is targeting RBC - the largest funder of the Coastal GasLink pipeline. RBC is also the 1st largest funder of fossil fuels in Canada, and fifth in the world!

We are joining with Indigenous allies and climate justice groups such as: Climate Justice Coalition, LeadNow, Extinction Rebellion, the Suzuki Foundation,, and others on November 5th to #KillTheDrill.

There will be speakers, singing, chalking, and the delivery of a letter written by Wet'suwet'en Land Defenders to the branch manager. #NoMoreDirtyBanks

The CGL pipeline has NOT been approved by the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs, who the Supreme Court of Canada ruled to be the legitimate authority over Wet'suwet'en territory. Yet government-sanctioned RCMP tactical units are guarding the CGL pipeline with assault rifles and attack dogs, while CGL illegally  forces its way through pristine lands and sacred waters of the Wet’suwet’en. The waters of Wedzin Kwa feed many and everything that depends on her is under attack.

The drilling under Wedzin Kwa has begun. It is destabilizing the watershed, causing irreversible damage, and disrupting salmon spawning

  • this is a direct violation of UNDRIP and illegal according to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans

  • unarmed Wet’suwet’en Land Defenders and are being continuously harassed and intimidated, day and night, while in their own homes

  • the UN has called this an extension of genocide

  • billions of dollars have already been spent, including over 25 million dollars of taxpayers’ money on RCMP intrusions

Please consider coming out to make some noise!
