COAST SALISH TERITORY - More than 1,000 people rallied in downtown Vancouver this afternoon to show solidarity and support for the Elsipogtog and Mi'kmaq anti-fracking blockade.

After speeches outside the Art Gallery, supporters wove through downtown streets to chants of "Mi'kmaq We've got Your Back" following the assault and mass arrest yesterday by heavily-armed RCMP officers on the Elsipogtog blockade in New Brunswick.

RCMP, including those in riot gear, snipers and attack dogs descended on the peaceful Mi’kmaq highway closure on behalf of a US mining company. Forty people were arrested including elders, local council members and Media Co-op reporter Miles Howe.
