RCMP move into Wet’suwet’en blockade, arrests made

RCMP officers moved in to execute an injunction against land defenders blocking an access road to the Coastal Gas Link pipeline.

Eyewitnesses say 13 RCMP vehicles came into the area known as Camp 39 around 5am local time on Thursday.

Two people were reportedly arrested and officers reportedly smashed out the window of a communications van being used by land defenders.

RCMP held a press conference on Wednesday pledging a peaceful execution of the injunction after talks broke down with hereditary Wet’suwet’en chiefs and Coastal Gas Link representatives seeking a resolution.
