Get out of our land »: protesters march Vancouver Wet & # 39; suwet & # 39; in anti-LNG camp support

VANCOUVER (1130 NEWS) – It was launched on Saturday afternoon in Vancouver, based on the Smiths' Wet & Wet Suwet Camp, in a proposed LNG gas pipeline in Coastal GasLink.

Protesters met at Victory Square at 2:00 p.m. In Hastings and Cambie, they reached the Main Street, where the meeting points were blocked and the events were organized. TransLink deflected the 95 B line, and police warned drivers to avoid the area. A running Facebook event has more than 700 participants.

Helen Tommy, Wet & # 39; suwet's creator of Nation, said the March national heresy leader admits the opposition to the pipe.

He started crying when asked by the police to return home.

"I felt so sad that I was not there with my country, my family went to Vancouver for many years to try to escape the oppression of our country, and yet we still face it every day," he says. "We want our country back, we want our culture back, and we will not let ourselves be ignored, because not only is our nation's responsibility, but our waters, but our world is our responsibility. If we continue to implement these devices, We will not have much more when we take offense. "

He says, in particular, that this pipeline is not the problem, but rather the oil industry in general.

"They say that the company we are receiving and respect us and they give us so much, where is the evidence? There is no longer," he says. "We left our land. It's not yours anymore, and it's never been yours."

The Vancouver Police Department wants to avoid people while protesting the area.
