In US news and current events today, this Indigenous woman
says she was verbally and racially abused as she rode the bus
on her daily commute as Native protests against a Canadian pipeline gain momentum.

For years, First Nations communities in Canada and their supporters, including members of the Wet’suwet’an nation, have fought the construction of TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink pipeline. The proposed pipeline would cross over traditional lands in British Columbia in order to ship oil to Asia.

Several elected Indigenous councils along the route have approved the construction of the pipeline, but Wet’suwet’an hereditary chiefs say they actually have the final say over the control of these traditional lands, and the elected Indigenous councils have no jurisdiction over them.

Protesters initially set up camps blockading access to the pipeline’s construction sites, but those camps have been removed
cleared by law enforcement. In recent weeks, Indigenous people and their allies have held demonstrations across Canada, reaching as far away as NYC in support of the anti-pipeline demonstrators.

Canada’s railways, highways, & ports have been occupied by demonstrators, with the aim of causing travel & economic disruption. However, an anti-Native sentiment is reportedly increasing as the acts of civil disobedience continue.

For Violet Baptiste, she was on the receiving end of it while riding the bus. Baptiste hopes non-Native allies will speak up when they see someone being harassed. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called for a peaceful end of the blockades.
