The Unist'ot'en, a clan of the Wet'suet'en Nation have built a protection camp to block the Pacific Trails Pipeline or PTP, in so called British Columbia in Canada. The PTP pipeline would bring natural gas obtained through fracking to the Pacific ocean and would cross through the Unist'ot'en's traditional territory. This is the third time the Unist'ot'en have called for a convergence in their land. This year's camp attracted over 150 people who came from as far east as Montreal and as far south as Florida.
The camp organizers opted not to tap large environmental ngo's for material support, and instead reached out to grassroots, community based allies.
