These photographs were taken on Monday, March 2, 2020 at the third weekly demonstration in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en First Nation people waging a protracted struggle in British Columbia, Canada against the construction of a pipeline on their territories.
The actions have been taking place at the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel on the border crossing to Canada.
These protests have been called by the Moratorium NOW! Coalition and the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI) enjoying the participation of Indigenous and North American activists.
Despite claims in the Canadian Press that a tentative deal was reached with the clan leaders in British Columbia on March 8, Moratorium NOW! Coalition/MECAWI, Indigenous activists protesting alongside them and others, will remain steadfast until such an agreement is approved by the relevant parties within the First Nation Wet’suwet’en people.
