A solidarity rally is planned for Thursday's afternoon rush hour at Winnipeg's most famous intersection. 

The protest is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Portage and Main.

It is in support of the Unist'ot'en camp which has blocked workers on the Coastal GasLink project from accessing the Wet'suwet'en territory in British Columbia.

An event page on Facebook for the protest says "We are now preparing for a protracted struggle. The hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en and the land defenders holding the front lines have no intention of allowing Wet’suwet’en sovereignty to be violated. In plain language, the threat made by RCMP to invade Wet’suwet’en territories is a violation of human rights, a siege, and an extension of the genocide that Wet’suwet’en have survived since contact."
