In the prepared statement, Drury said the protest at the RCMP E-Division’s Green Timbers Way headquarters would start with speakers, “before a more disruptive direct action.”

Protesters will rally in front of the RCMP’s E-Division headquarters in Surrey on Thursday to support the continuing Wet’suwet’en blockade in Northern B.C.

In a statement released on Wednesday night, longtime protester Ivan Drury said supporters of the Wet’suwet’en Nation would be enforcing the “Indigenous rule of law” by setting up an “anti-RCMP checkpoint” outside the RCMP E-Division headquarters.

On Monday, the RCMP blocked access to three Wet’suwet’en camps (one permanent) along the Morice West Forest Service Road (west of Houston) that are preventing Coastal GasLink workers from accessing their work site further up the one-way road. Coastal GasLink are building a natural gas pipeline between Dawson Creek and Kitimat through Wet’suwet’en territorial lands. They have struck access deals with the Wet’suwet’en First Nation that controls a reserve near Burns Lake, B.C., but not with the hereditary chiefs.

The RCMP have moved in at the company’s request, backed by a Supreme Court of B.C. court injunction ordering Wet’suwet’en members and supporters to allow the work to carry on.
