Summer of Solidarity - A view from the sacred fire encampment in Elsipogtog

by Martha Stiegman and Miles Howe

ELSIPOGTOG, NEW BRUNSWICK - The sacred fire encampment in Elsipogtog, New Brunswick, has now entered its fourth week. United in their protest against SWN Resources Canada's seismic testing, the sacred fire has drawn together a wide swath of the population, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous.

While there has been understandable focus on arrests, threats, disregard for culture and tradition, and the destruction of SWN property, in this video we take a quick look at a day at the sacred fire where conversation, not confrontation, took precedence.
