Invasion: Canada’s Ongoing Colonization of Its Indigenous People

Invasion
Unistoten Camp (2019)
Film Review
Invasion is about an incursion into Wet'suwet'en earlier this year by Canadian police armed with assault weapons. This followed an injunction a British Columbia court granting  petroleum companies authority to build a network of oil/gas pipelines across their land. Since none of the Wet'suet'en clans have ceded their land to European settlers, the injunction is illegal.
Despite the arrest of 14 clan activists, the standoff continues, as the local clans complete construction of a four-story healing center near one of the proposed pipeline routes. The arrests have triggered support protests by indigenous people and environmentalists across Canada and in the US.
