Skyler Williams, Layla Staats & Logan Staats on RCMP Violence


aboriginal ancestral lands Wet'suwet'en land defenders RCMP police violence resource extraction solidarity

We hear from Skyler Williams, Layla Staats and Logan Staats - Mohawks from Six Nations of the Grand River and part of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. They share their experiences travelling to Wet'suwet'en territory to help Wet'suwet'en Nation hereditary leaders, clan members and relatives protect the lands and waters from destruction by Coastal Gaslink pipeline. 

They shared some very difficult experiences related to the violence, taunting and degrading treatment they received in the hands of the RCMP, despite being unarmed and peaceful land defenders. Their comments are fair political comment and do not necessarily represent their legal positions on any of these matters.
