Late last week in Canada, the R.C.M.P. raided an ongoing blocakde organized by Mi’kmaq peoples against fracking. The blockade had been blocking attempts by the Texas-based South Western Energy from doing their work and has cost the company an estimated $50,000 per day. In response to the raid, fracking equipment was seized and police cars set ablaze, while solidarity actions happened across North America.
Submedia.tv has produced a short video on the raid, providing some of the only coverage from behind police lines of the raid:
For additional background information, an earlier video by Submedia.tv provides a detailed look at the blockade.
