Grassroots Mi’kmaq people in the unceded territory of so-called Nova Scotia have been resisting the Alton Gas project, which aims to build salt caverns for natural gas storage. The project could have devastating repercussions for the Shubenacadie river and its unique ecosystem. Water protectors have decided to directly block the project by setting up a truckhouse and a camp citing the 1752 Peace and Friendship treaty.
UPDATE: There is an injunction hearing for the camp tomorrow in the supreme court of Nova Scotia. If you want to DONATE to this indigenous-led land defense camp's legal fund, go here: https://stopaltongas.wordpress.com/donate/
