CKUT had a chance to talk to Annie Clair, who is a Mi’kmaq land defender who still faces charges from her participation in the Mi’kmaq struggle against exploration for fracking by the company SWN Resources in Elsipogtog, in so- called “New Brunswick”.

Our conversation took place in the context of an anti-colonial assembly that happened on Saturday, June 6th during a week of workshops and discussions called Vaincre la Marée Noire.

We could also chat with Frank Lopez, an independent videographer with Submedia, who covered the struggle in Elsipogtog in 2013.
