Wet’suwet’en solidarity march shuts down north core
About 80 people marched through the streets of Thunder Bay’s north core early Tuesday evening. It’s the city’s first major action in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs who oppose the construction of a natural gas pipeline through their traditional territory in northwestern British Columbia.
Police blocked off parts of Red River Road, Cumberland and Water streets as the group circled the downtown area. Protesters at times passed outside areas police had blocked off, momentarily snarling traffic. Those who had helped plan the action said the inconvenience is part of the point.
“We don’t want to make it too easy for people,” said Ma-Nee Chacaby, marching near the front of the group. “Protest is all about fighting for your right to be seen.”
Chacaby said she wanted those on the front lines in B.C. to see that they’re not alone.
“We’re here to support the people in the West, we want to show that we’re all for them,” she said. “I would be over there with them now if I had my way.” – tbnewswatch
