PRINCE GEORGE - The 14 people arrested earlier this week at the Morice River Bridge have been released in Prince George.

One of the first things they did before returning to their nation was to visit a medical clinic.

According to one protester, all 14 who were detained are physically exhausted and have not slept well.

The protesters released today say they still stand firm that no pipelines will cross Wet'suwet'en territory.


RCMP confirming 14 people were arrested for various offenses. Corporal Madonna Saunderson says despite officers best efforts to resolve the situation peacefully, arrests took place and one of those arrested did suffer a minor injury. Saunderson adds one officer suffered a minor injury after being hit with a stick. She says under the law, RCMP may use reasonable force for people who have exceeded the court's limits of a safe, peaceful, and lawful protest. RCMP remain hopeful the ongoing dialog with all parties will result in a peaceful resolution.
