Embassy on Tuesday 27th November at 10:30 pm. The address is Maple House, 3-3A Sweet Briar Rd., St. Clair, Port of Spain. The picket is to show solidarity with the anti-tar sands moverment in Canada and in particular with the First Peoples of Canada who are under extreme pressure from the consequences of tar sands mining in Canada.
Freda Huson representing the First peoples of British Colombia is on a visit to Trinidad to show her solidarity with Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh and in opposition to the proposed Tar Sands.

On Friday November 23rd she conveyed her message to Dr Wayne Kublalsingh and spoke in defence of communities at the mercy of imposed government policies on the people.

However it has been brought to our attention that the Unis’tot’en Camp back in B.C. had stopped Apache Corporation Surveyors and evicted them for trespass.

Given these developments the Rights Action Group and Trini Eco Warriors as an expression of solidarity with Unis’tot’en Camp of Wet’suwet’en Nation will be holding a protest in front of the Canadian High Commission on Tuesday November 27th 10:30 AM.
Ms Huson will deliver a letter to Canadian Representatives that the Canadian Government does not have jurisdiction on unceded Aboriginal Lands and that oil and gas companies have been given notice that they are not welcome on Unis’tot’en Land.
