Today, Freda Huson of the #Unistoten is in New York at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, to address the ongoing human rights violations against the Wet’suwet’en people.

This thread is her statement in full. Visit our FB page for the video. #wetsuwetenstrong
"Thank you for the opportunity to speak.

I am Freda Huson of Unist’ot’en –Wet’suwet’en People of Canada.

I am here to express concerns with Human Rights Violations happening to my people. Since time immemorial, my people have lived in a balanced relationship with our lands.
We depend on the land to survive, and we are responsible for protecting it. Since Canada began settling on our territories, we have been forced onto reservations and away from our traditional land base.

So... @jjhorgan @GeorgeHeyman @scottfraserndp et al. @bcndp just going to turn a blind eye to #Unistoten situation or are you going to step up and act like leaders on this? #BCpoli #CdnPoli #Deescalate #UNDRIP #NoConsent #NoPipelines
...there's an aching silence right now that for #BCNDP folks in particular should smell a lot like the days leading up to August 18, 1995. #BCpoli
also - I think @jjhorgan @SohiAmarjeet @DonaldsonDoug @GeorgeHeyman @michellemungall @lanapopham & @BruceRalston should withdraw from the @BCNRF #BCNRF19 until the conflict is resolved in order to show respect. #BCpoli #UNDRIP

Anti-racism 101. A thread.
#1. If a BIPOC person criticizes whiteness or white people, they’re talking about the construct of whiteness, white supremacy, white supremacist behaviour & institutions. If you & others don’t do the thing described, DO NOT go “not all white people”. They know it’s not all of us.
#2. Systemic racism. The institutions (e.g. police, law courts, schools), behaviours, societal assumptions, discrimination, lack of representation in media, stereotypes, and other systems that oppress BIPOC people.
