Camo, riot-gear, guns, & pepper spray RCMP response to PEACEful anti-fracking protest by Elsipogtog and Mi’kmaq First Nations

An anti-fracking protest by hundreds of Indigenous  turned violent on Thursday when police came to break up the action. Members of the Elsipogtog and Mi’kmaq First Nations tribes blocked a highway in the province of New Brunswick to stop shale gas company SWN Resources from continuing development in the area.
