Currently we are accepting donations to support Mi’kmaw Land Defenders who set up a blockade in Elsipogtog, NB, to stop fracking exploration on their territories. There is a trial coming up in June, and we need to raise $7000 for legal fees. To make a donation you can click on the paypal button on the right, and specify in the note that it is for Mi’kmaw Land Defenders.
Please watch the video for some more information.
On Sunday, April 12th, we are holding a silent auction for Annie Clair at the Mi’kmaq Native Friendship Centre to raise money for Annie’s legal fees. The event will be from 6:00-8:00 pm, with tasty food, poetry from El Jones and Rebecca Thomas, Annie Clair will speak, and more special guests. There will be beautiful art and other great items from our community in the auction, so come prepared to bid!
We are asking everyone in the community to come and share your support for Annie! Suggested donation is $10-20 at the door, however no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
