Protest - Revolt



Read the RCMP report  on "Project SITKA', obtained through a freedom of information application, on how the RCMP approach oppositional political activities, especially by indigenous peoples and resource develpment projects. It is quickly evident their whole approach is premised on such activities as being illigitimate, criminal threats to Canada.

OTTAWA -- Dozens of protesters delayed an appearance by the prime minister Tuesday afternoon, drumming and chanting in a government building where Justin Trudeau was set to speak.

Police kept the prime minister out of a Sussex Drive building in Ottawa, where he was to address a forum bringing together federal officials and representatives from self-governing First Nations that have "modern" treaties with the Crown.

A state board in Virginia approved a contentious plan Tuesday to build a natural gas pipeline station in a historic African-American community, prompting angry shouts of "shame" from more than 200 opponents.

The State Air Pollution Control Board voted 4-0 in favour of a key permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, which would run 600 miles (965 kilometres) and carry fracked natural gas from West Virginia into Virginia and North Carolina.

The Unist’ot’en Camp near Smithers in northern British Columbia offers a crucial lesson for all humanity -- that the land provides for everyone who lives on it, and we in turn have a responsibility to reciprocate and care for the land.
