Skyler Williams & Layla & Logan Staats on RCMP Violence

In Episode 117 of Warrior Life Podcast, we hear from Skyler Williams, Layla Staats and Logan Staats – Mohawks from Six Nations of the Grand River and part of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. They share their experiences travelling to Wet’suwet’en territory to help protecting Wet’suwet’en Nation hereditary leaders, clan members and relatives protect the lands and waters from destruction by Coastal Gaslink pipeline.

They shared some very difficult experiences related to the violence, taunting and degrading treatment they received in the hands of the RCMP, despite being unarmed and peaceful land defenders.
