We’re reaching out to ask for your support at an urgent moment.

The courageous land defenders of the Unist'ot'en camp have just been informed that TransCanada, the company trying to ram their Coastal Gas Link fracking pipeline through Unist’ot’en territory, has applied for an injunction asking the RCMP to arrest and remove all people from the camp, as soon as next week.

The Unist’ot’en Camp­ is a resistance struggle and community that has occupied and defended their unceded and unsurrendered territory continuously for the last 10 years and, in doing so, contributed to the cancellation of five pipelines.

Unist’ot’en urgently needs funds to face Coastal Gas Link and TransCanada in court. They have put out a call for solidarity and fundraising. This support is needed right now.

Help us mobilize support in Toronto by sharing this campaign with friends and family. 100% of funds donated to this campaign will go to the camp, supporting the ongoing peaceful occupation to protect Unist’ot’en homelands from illegal industrial encroachments, and create a space for community healing from the violence of colonization.

The Unist’ot’en Camp has already contributed to the cancellation of five pipelines, and despite many attempts over the past decade, no pipeline work has been done within Unist’ot’en territory. The camp is on the frontlines of fighting the climate crisis, and the actions the Unist’ot’en people have taken to stop these pipelines from being built serve to protect not only their land, but all of us. It is actions like these - deeply impactful, community-led, and directly confronting fossil fuel infrastructure – that represent our best hope at continuing to inhabit a liveable planet.  

We are raising funds until December 21st!

Please give what you can and help to spread the word.

Superb work everyone! We are so close to reaching our goal of $5000 - if we make it by the end of the day, that would be wonderful! But whatever happens we will continue to support the grassroots Indigenous resistance to climate-killing, toxic, capital-driven projects.

Please continue to follow and support the Unist'ot'en and all land defenders - send them your prayers and good thoughts, look for ways to tell people about their principled advocacy for our shared home, and look for the new ways that people are creatively and generatively working for change!

May this solstice season bring you comfort, meaning and joy.

Amazing! We've hit our funding goal again!

Hundreds of dedicated people brought their passion to the street on Monday, right into the lobby of the building where TransCanada keeps an office in Tkaronto.

Check out some of the rousing pictures and quotes!

Yes! In 4 days we've raised nearly $2000 for the courageous and steadfast defenders of the land at the Unist'ot'en camp!

We are going to raise our goal again, to try and make it to $3000 before Monday, Dec 10!

Please re-post this campaign to keep the attention on the camp - even if people can't support financially, getting the word out there is really important to show the grassroots attention on what is happening.

Thank you so much for all you do! You're part of building something vital.

In the love that breaks down walls, blocks pipelines, and liberates bodies and spirits!

Thank you so much to all who have donated so far and shared this call for funds with their networks!

Together we can continue the momentum, so we are increasing our fundraising objective to $2000 - this is well within our reach if we can share the invite far and wide.

We're running this campaign to generate immediate solidarity to the Unist'ot'en camp as they face this injunction on December 10. The camp has been holding the line for years, at the same time providing a much needed space for culturally appropriate healing and revitalization. Let's keep pushing as December 10 draws closer!

With solidarity and love from Toronto!
