Demand immediate closure of pipeline construction camps exposing indigenous communities to COVID-19.
The Mosquito Fleet is joining our friends at Wet’suwet’en Solidarity US, Rising Tide North America, and thousands of allies in calling for the immediate closure of pipeline construction camps in Canada, where dangerous and crowded working conditions are exposing hundreds of workers to COVID-19.
While people are warned to remain at home and take precautions due to COVID 19, the oil and gas industry is continuing to push forward with construction of mega-projects like Trans Mountain. Workers on these projects are living in “man camps” by the hundreds in tight quarters, increasing the risk posed to local indigenous communities and workers alike.
Powerholders like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Health Minister Adrian Dix, and Premier John Horgan have the power to shut down these camps. We are calling on them to stop this public health crisis from man camps and demand they stop the work putting communities at risk.
Save lives, not pipelines. Take action now.
