Over the past week there have been daily confrontations with police, as protesters – who prefer to be known as PROTECTORS OF THE LAND AND WATER– have persisted in their efforts to slow the seismic testing operation.
“This isn’t just a native issue,” Edgar Clair of Elsipogtog First Nation said from the site of the blockade on Route 11. “But the natives want the world to know that this is Mi’kmaq territory, and they won’t back down and they won’t abide by this injunction.”
