K'JIPUKTUK (Halifax) - Over 250 people rallied in Halifax on October 18th, after the Mi'kmaq Warrior Society made a call out for action. The rally stood in solidarity with the blockade in New Brunswick where hundreds have been defending the land, water, and resources from South Western Energy for nearly five months. The New Brunswick police and RCMP have hardly demonstrated ethical behavior throughout this blockade, and have recently demonstrated further brutality and violence with guns, assault riffles, and pepper spray, all of which have been used against protestors. 

Halifax responded and took to the streets to raise awareness and to show support and solidarity.
