Twelve protesters who spent nearly two days suspended from a bridge in British Columbia, blocking the path of an oil tanker, vowed Thursday to continue fighting Canada\u0026#039;s plans to buy Kinder Morgan\u0026#039;s Trans Mountain pipeline, after police forced them to end their demonstration.BREAKING: All 12 climbers are down from the bridge after 40+ hour blockade of a tar sands oil tanker.RCMP say all will be charged with Mischief \u0026amp; Section 121 of the Canada Shipping Act and released on PTA’s.Thank you for all your support!

It is in my blood to protect the water. Our Indigenous rights are being completely ignored, the safety of our water is being ignored, and most of all my son\u0026#039;s future is at stake. I will do whatever it takes to protect the water and my family and your family,\u0022 Will George, an Indigenous Coast Salish member, said in a statement after the protest ended.George was among the Greenpeace members—from all over Canada as well as the U.S., Mexico, and the U.K.—who rappelled from the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge for 35 hours to form a blockade preventing a Trans Mountain oil tanker from leaving Vancouver with tar sands oil.The \u0022aerial blockade\u0022 organized by Greenpeace Canada is now on day 2. Seven people remain suspended beneath the Ironworkers memorial bridge here. Demonstration is in opposition to the #TransMountain pipeline.

The plan also violates the U.N. Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.\u0022No one should need to spend almost two days suspended from a bridge trying to protect something as essential as water but that\u0026#039;s exactly what Prime Minister Trudeau has driven us to do,\u0022 said Mike Hudema, a Greenpeace Canada spokesperson. \u0022The prime minister still has a chance to make the right decision and stop this pipeline. Whether it\u0026#039;s by his pen, in the courts, or the global resistance the pipeline won\u0026#039;t be built—this movement of people isn\u0026#039;t going anywhere.\u0022As outcry over the financing of fossil fuel projects has grown, Europe\u0026#039;s two largest banks, BNP Paribas and HSBC, have announced they would not support the Trans Mountain pipeline.
