Indigenous Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs and land defenders are still resisting the construction of the Coastal GasLink LNG pipeline slated to cut through their territories.
For nearly ten years, Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Leaders have made it clear that they want no pipelines on the Wet’suwet’en Yintah – the Wet’suwet’en traditional territory. The Nation had the rights over its traditional lands confirmed in a landmark 1997 ruling of the Supreme Court of Canada. But the pipeline owners and the BC government still won’t listen.
JPMorgan Chase, the world’s biggest banker of fossil fuels, and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR), a New York City based investment firm with over $200 billion in assets – are two of the companies behind the financing of the pipeline.
Fortunately, KKR’s plans to invest in the pipeline aren’t final. There’s still time to interrupt their plans. And we must hold them accountable before it’s too late.
Sign the petition and rise up with the Wet'suwet'en people: Demand Chase and KKR defund the Coastal GasLink pipeline.
