Wet'suwet'en protesters block Coastal GasLink site again, 1 month after RCMP crackdown

One month after the high-profile arrests of dozens people on Wet'suwet'en territory, a group identifying themselves as land defenders returned Sunday to reoccupy a protest camp, blocking access to a Coastal GasLink pipeline drill site in northern British Columbia.

"The Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs' eviction notice to Coastal GasLink still stands," Jennifer Wickham, media co-ordinator for the Gidimt'en Checkpoint told CBC News.

She said Wet'suwet'en people and their supporters "are doing what they can in order to ensure that no pipelines cross traditional territory."

Wickham wouldn't say how many people had returned to the remote Coyote Camp.
