Voices from Kelowna continue to be heard in support of the Wet’suwet’en nation.

On Saturday afternoon, Wet’suwet’en supporters and protesters of the ongoing Coastal GasLink project in northern B.C. brandished their signs along the overpass bridge in Kelowna near Parkinson Recreation Centre.

Rallies and protests against the Coastal GasLink are being held across the province, with numerous supporters already having gathered in Kelowna and the Okanagan.

Signs that read “No tar sands” and “no pipelines” were visible from drivers on Harvey Avenue throughout the afternoon.

The Coastal GasLink pipeline protests have blocked numerous Canadian rail links after RCMP enforced an injunction against Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs and their supporters.
