Everything We Know About the Possible RCMP Raid on the Unist’ot’en Camp

The Vice video is very informative for those who don’t know how much this land means to the unistoten. When one talks about anyone interfering with jobs…you have to ask yourself, what is a job?

This is what the unistoten are doing on the land — they use it for food, water, shelter, and the possibility of clothing (sheep or flax, possibly). So what is the difference? The difference is that oil destroys the very basics of life: water, soil, air. You destroy those, and you’re done. You can’t eat money.
