How to Stop an Oil and Gas Pipeline

The Unist'ot'en Camp Resistance

For the past four years we have been visiting the Unist’ot’en camp and since then, we just can’t shut up about them. Why? Because their form of protest is beyond words and it’s manifested in direct action. They have created a real physical wall of opposition to all the proposed pipelines that could bring oil from the tar sands and fracked gas to world market in the Pacific ocean. We introduced them to the world with our “Oil Gateway” video back in 2011, and then with “The Action Camp” in 2012. We are now pleased to share with you our third mini-doc about them “Chokepoint: How to Stop a Pipeline” which we made for Al Jazeera’s AJ+.
