unceded Tseshaht territories.
RCMP, including with snipers and dogs and camouflaged and black-clad RCMP tactical officers, have descended on the Mi’kmaq anti-fracking blockade. There are images of elders drumming, praying and crying as warriors as well as Chief and Council are being arrested. RCMP report 40 arrested at Elispogtog. Stand alongside Elsipogtog and show your support at this critical time.
Watch this video for background on the blockade:
