Environment, →Video

See video

Suzanne Patles, one of many warriors attacked in a dawn raid by RCMP (physically assaulted with assault rifles) along with many youth, elders and community members for peacefully trying to protect their water by blockading fracking equipment, shares her experiences at a strategy session as part of the Mi’kmaq Warriors west coast speaking tour.

Suzanne Patles of the Mi'kmaq Warriors Society spoke at a strategy session co-sponsored by First Nations Studies SFU, and the English Department, SFU at the downtown Harbour Centre campus Friday, January 24th, on unceded Coast Salish Territories.

Members of the Mi'kmaq Warriors Society, who have been arrested and incarcerated at Elsipogtog, New Brunswick, are on a speaking tour in January and February to raise awareness about their struggle against fracking, their ongoing assertion and exercise of nationhood, and the repression they face from police and courts.

"Our warriors are still being mistreated in the system, justice for our political prisoners of war." Suzanne Patles
