Check out this short film on the ongoing struggle of the Unist’ot’en Camp of the Wet’suwet’en Nation to reoccupy their lands and stop pipeline construction. The battle against a natural-gas project appears set to enter a new phase after a British Columbia Supreme Court injunction and the Premier’s pledge that the project will go ahead.
Trump and his Big Oil cronies want to destroy all of us, just green-lighting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, one in a long line of planned and approved climate and environmental policy brutalizations. Sorry, folks, this is not hyperbole. Yet the story doesn’t end there…

RESIST: The Unist’oten’s Call to the Land is one of two documentaries on a year-round resistance to exploitative industry, and what it represents in relation to indigenous sovereignty and the environmental, legal, and social issues surrounding pipeline projects in British Columbia.
As we walked, I pondered all of the battlefields that the emerging international movement to stop the tar sands and its associated infrastructure of pipelines, refineries, and shipping lanes is engaged with. I was overcome by the magnitude of our undertaking, picking a fight with the most inhumane and wealthiest corporations on the planet.
Dear Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, I received your letter in response to my earlier note imploring you to do all you can to prevent the completion of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Your words express your intent to do exactly the opposite of what I had asked. And to be frank, your words piss me off.
Joe Nocera in the New York Times believes Dr. James Hansen, because he is head of NASA’s Goddard Institute, should just shut up instead of participating in the anti-Keystone XL movement. Peter Jefferson Nichols argues this should be the role of any government scientist who recognizes the danger of passing climate tipping points, producing irreversible climate impacts.
