WUFA Stands in Solidarity with Wet'suwet'en People
Windsor University Faculty Association (WUFA) represents university faculty and librarians at the University of Windsor, which sits on the lands of Three Fires Confederacy composed of the Potawatomi, Ojibway, Odawa. We are committed to being good guests on this land.
WUFA stands in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en people, in support of their right to self-determination in accordance with their laws, traditions and practices. The Wet’suwet’en Nation hold title to their lands, which has never been extinguished by the Crown. As current events make clear, it is high time for the government of British Columbia to recognize the Wet’suewet’en people’s right to self-determination and to make their own internal decisions about access and operations in their territory, whatever that might be. The government of BC must therefore engage in nation-to-nation negotiations and relations with the Wet’suwet’en, rather than using the strong hand of Canadian law, the paper fist of injunctions and the force of police powers.
