Elsipogtog needs support from across Turtle Island
The reports of RCMP use of teargas, snipers, hoses on women, children and men are stifling.
They are protecting their rights to their territory from shale gas exploration, otherwise known as fracking.
Let's do our due diligence and show our solidarity.
Keep this peaceful and keep protocol. We would like to keep this as a prayer ceremony in solidarity across Turtle Island and thank all suggestions for support.
I cannot reiterate enough thanks for the support already.
Urgent call for solidarity and support
Support #Elsipogtog and Mi'kmaq anti fracking blockade.
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. Stand alongside Elsipogtog and show your support at this critical time.
