In recent months, illegal protests and blockades have attempted to halt the construction of the Coastal GasLink LNG pipeline in British Columbia. 

The project has the support of the democratically elected chiefs and councils of every Indigenous band along the pipeline route, but radical activists continue to wreak havoc.
Canada’s state broadcaster has solicited the work of a radical anarchist activist to produce a documentary on the ongoing protests targeting BC natural gas pipelines.
Franklin López has recently become involved in the CBC production Yintah, which centres on so-called Wet’suwet’en resistance to the Coastal GasLink pipeline in northern BC.
López has been a staple figure in the Canadian anti-authority far-left for years and is the founder of the multimedia company sub.Media.
The company’s productions include various short films and documentaries on a range of anarchist and anti-authority topics. Videos with titles such as “Oil Pipelines Are Easy To Shut Down” and “How to Paralyze a Country” are commonly featured on sub.Media’s Vimeo channel.
The content is also a go-to resource for extremist Antifa websites that endorse criminal and violent tactics to achieve their ends.
