Unist'ot'en Camp Spring Fund Drive!

$13,775 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 139 people in 2 months
Created April 1, 2018
Since 2010 the Unist’ot’en clan has been patrolling its traditional territory to prevent the construction of oil and gas pipelines that threaten to destroy two salmon bearing rivers. Extreme weather events last fall and winter created conditions that are likely to flood the camp this spring and we need your help to protect our critical infrastructure.

Over the past seven years allies have helped us to establish a permanent camp with bunkhouses, a dining hall and cabins to house everyone who comes here to protect our rivers. An unusual amount of rain last fall damaged roads that we use to patrol the land and created two small canyons that are likely to flood the camp during snow melt this spring.

We desperately need some heavy equipment to repair the drainage system so that we can continue to protecting our rivers. We have three or four weeks until the spring flood to come up with $15,000 to buy a used back hoe. Please help us to protect the land by sharing this request far and wide and by donating if you can.

Thank you so much for all of your support. Every donation, every share and every positive thought makes a difference.

In Solidarity,
Freda Huson and Smogelgem
