Indigenous youth who have stood on the Wet'suwet'en front lines offer this message of solidarity for the Mohawks of Tyendinaga, and for people standing up across Turtle Island. The threat of violence will not stop us from defending the sacred for our future generations.
"The reason the RCMP showed to Wet'suwet'en territory with dozens of officers, tactical teams, dogs, assault rifles, is because they're scared of us and they want to scare us into not taking action and not speaking up.
The reason they shut down the Tyendinaga blockade is because they're scared of them and what's going to happen. And we can't back down because that's exactly what they're trying to get us to do.
We have so much power now. We have more power than we've ever had almost in the last 150 years and we can't stop now."
