"One Month after Arrests, Wet’suwet’en Return to Block Pipeline"

"Coyote Camp blocks access to the site where Coastal GasLink plans to drill under the Morice River."

"One month after dozens of arrests, supporters of Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs have reoccupied a worksite on the Coastal GasLink pipeline route in the nation’s territory.

The group announced Sunday they had returned to occupy Coyote Camp and block access to a strategic pipeline worksite.

The camp had been cleared in November as the RCMP enforced an injunction against blocking access to Coastal GasLink worksites.

It was established in September on a spur road off the Morice West Forest Service Road about 100 kilometres southwest of Houston. It blocks access to the site where the pipeline company plans to drill under the Morice River, known to the Wet’suwet’en as Wedzin Kwa."
