Anti pipeline supporters plan rally at BC Legislature Tuesday
Supporters of Indigenous anti-pipeline protesters in northern B.C. will hold a rally at the legislature in Victoria at noon tomorrow.
A group called "Rise and Resist" says on Facebook, the rally will be in support of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation.
Members of two clans of the First Nation say they face injunction enforcement action from RCMP as they try to block a natural gas pipeline from being built on their traditional territory, near Houston and Smithers B.C.
The group says supporters will rally at the BC Legislature "by peacefully refusing to allow access to Belleville Street outside the legislature" at noon.
The Victoria protest is just one of many planned around the country on what demonstrators are calling an international day of action.
