Palestinian Youth & Student Solidarity with Mi’kmaq Blockade

From one stolen land to another, we express our highest solidarity with the Mi\’kmaq and Elsipogtog people, the Mi\’kmaq Warriors Society and the members of their blockade, defending their lands and confronting colonial resource extraction and profiteering. The blockade, which began September 30, closed Highway 134 in New Brunswick, in the Canadian state, in order to prevent devastating resource extraction hydraulic fracturing or \”fracking\” by SWN Resources, a large U.S. corporation.This blockade is a powerful action of Indigenous people exerting their right to their land, to protect it and prevent its exploitation and destruction taking place, and demanding justice, dignity and decolonization. SWN Resources claims the blockade has cost it $60,000 daily as it attempts to carry out natural gas exploration in the area for hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic fracturing fracking is a destructive process to extract shale gas that is devastating to the environment and water.
