Elsipogtog vs. Big Oil: Recounting the Mi'kmaq Warrior Society resistance

Debriefing Elsipogtog: The Anatomy of a Struggle

by Miles Howe
(Fernwood Publishing,
2015;
$24.95)

With the luxury of 18 months of hindsight, I was able to more fully explore and delve into some of the non-violent tactics used by the resistance to shale gas in New Brunswick in 2013. I felt it was important to highlight a few of the summertime 2013 efforts of the Mi'kmaq Warrior Society. This was prior to the blockade of late September/early October that would ultimately culminate in a hundreds-strong RCMP raid, but it was after a June and July of watching and assessing the actions of the RCMP.

Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Boarded, arrested, impounded, sabotaged and finally shelled from the sea -- the Canadian Boat to Gaza and Gaza's Ark have not given up. Amid the hot-war conflicts today, peace activists are still at work, bringing attention to people who seek liberty and self-determination.

In the Spring of 2015, Freedom Flotilla III will sail, again.
