Mi’kmaq Territory: Update on Treaty Camp Against Alton Gas

The following is a video update on the ongoing struggle in so-called British Columbia against a fracked natural gas storage project from the Alton Gas company. In response, a resistance camp has been set up to defend the territory. 

Mi’kmaqs have been blocking a fracked gas storage project by Alton Gas that would pollute the Shubenacadie river. Alton Gas project manager and ex-RCMP agent, Rob Turner, showed up to the camp to put up a “no trespassing” sign. Not only was the sign covered up, but the camp also called for another work day where allies came in to help build infrastructure and prepare the camp for the struggle ahead.

Water protectors are engaging treaty law in the anti-colonial struggle. This law supersedes all Canadian law. Follow this struggle!
