After a long day in court 10 Land Defenders and supporters arrested on Gidimt’en territory, including Sleydo’ and Jocelyn, remain in custody in so-called Prince George.
Court has been adjourned and will resume at 9am tomorrow.
Cody Merriman was released with conditions to reappear in court on Feb 14th, and to not return to the RCMP/CGL "exclusion area" except to travel through it to his residence.
Faced with this colonial conditional release, the decision was made to sign in order to take care of he and Sleydo's young children - and not in recognition of any wrong doing.
Amber Bracken and Michael Toledano, members of the media, and 7 other supporters were granted release under conditions to obey the injunction and reappear in court on February 14th.

Shortly before 3pm, a large caravan of RCMP agents and multiple k9 units returned from Coyote Camp and arrested Sleydo’s husband, Cody, who was documenting the illegal entry of the RCMP on Woos’ Territory from the side of the road.

Inspector Ken Floyd, of the RCMP E Division, claimed that Merriman was blockading the roadway and preventing Coast GasLink from conducting their operations, therefore in breach of the BC Supreme Court injunction.

Drill Site Pad Coyote Camp CAS YIKH Territory

November 19th 2021

Dini ze’ Woos’ daughter Jocelyn (Jocey) Alec was staying in the cabin on the drill site pad for over a month before RCMP invaded and ripped her from her fathers territory.

(THREAD 1/10) ImageImage
She held her ground for as long as she could while two sniper RCMP pointed their guns at her. She still stood her ground.

“My Warrior Sister I have never been more proud of you the bravery you demonstrated in the face of guns pointed at you...

...You didn’t run when word of a convoy of 35+ heavily militarized RCMP, heavy machinery, police vans, K9-units, snipers, tactical teams, helicopters on their way to Coyote Camp and you knew they were coming for you…

URGENT UPDATE - Dozens of RCMP have deployed onto Wet'suwet'en territory

A charter plane full of RCMP have landed at the Smithers airport, with between 30 and 50 officers equipped with camo duffel bags.

Police loaded onto two buses and unmarked, rental pick-up trucks and headed out towards the yintah. An RCMP helicopter is reported to be heading to the area.

Throughout today, helicopters have circled over our camps, conducting low, deliberate flights for surveillance.
The road into our yintah remains blocked by RCMP at 28km, with hereditary chiefs, food, and medical supplies being turned away.

WET’SUWET’EN people are once again in control of Wet’suwet’en yintah! Dinï ze’ Woos asserts jurisdiction by enforcing our laws with the 2021 Evacuation Order. The Morice River FSR has been disabled, blocking trespassers from our yintah! Image
CGL was given 8 hours to evacuate their worksites and after asking for an extension of two hours to get their workers out safely, CGL chose to keep their workers in the territory. They blockaded the road with trucks and heavy machinery on a bridge near what is known as Camp 9A.
Community members and supporters gathered at the 39km marker today and everyone on the yintah is safe and secure, effectively stopping all work within Cas Yikh territory!
