APTN has reporter Ossie Michelin on the ground in Rexton, New Brunswick, following as RCMP officers moved into the blockade on Mi’kmaq territory early on Thursday. Police were there apparently with the goal of enforcing an injunction to have the barricade, erected as part of on-going anti-fracking protests against SWN Resources Canada, removed.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
