Letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
We are requesting that you, as Prime Minister, intervene and bring an end to the arrests and intimidation of the Wet’suwet’en people who oppose the construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline on their land.
We want to remind your government that the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs have been recognized by the Supreme Court of Canada as the supreme authority of their Nation. It is time to recognize their concern about the construction of this pipeline which, among other things, cuts their territory in two.
The members of the First Nations Fraternity, committee of the Raelian Movement, support the Wet’suwet’en in their right to decide over their land.
Maitreya Rael “…advocates the restitution of lands, the resurrection of customs, religions, indigenous languages, and the federation into a united continent that incorporates in harmony and social justice all original and immigrant populations.” (Contact #328 – January 30, 61aH)
We are requesting that the federal and British Columbia governments bring an end to the criminalization of the Wet’suwet’en as protectors of the land and prevent harassment and arbitrary arrests by RCMP officers.
We are hopeful that our request will not go unheeded.
Support the Wet’suwet’en, in relation to Amnesty International’s petition to protect the Wet’suwet’en territory.
