Marius said, "I traveled to Elsipogtog rez, near Rexton, New Brunswick where of recent, our senses were assaulted by images of the RCMP manhandling women, children, and jailing the men who made a stand against such unbridled, disrespectful and hateful display of police powers against Indigenous People. This photo is taken at the camp, Rexton, New Brunswick, rebuilt after the raid by the RCMP to severely hamper any organized resistance against fracking on unceded lands."
"The youths have me very impressed after we all convened within a circle to discuss the sacred."
Marius said to those who continue the resistance in the camp, "My heart will be with you, bros! You stand them down well, and the spirit of the free whispers a chant of the ages. MIQ MAQUI! Proud to be with you, and love to you from out west! With the best of the Maritimes! Land and water protectors -- allies, warriors and youthful ardor against fracking in Miq Maqui Lands!"

Yes, life as we know it has to change. Unacceptable decisions are made by the Corporate Politicians and we, the people have lost many human rights that we will never forget nor we will ever get back. As a raised acadian from Shippagan, NB I stand side by side with my Mi'kmaw brothers and sisters following what my heart tells me to do. We all need to get the right information to have a righteous opinion. So, Stand up and Do Something.

It's been over a year now, and I still hear the powerful drums of the Atlantic coastal Mikmaw People. I travelled a 5-day journey to get there, and a 4-day journey return, to be with the free. Brothers and sisters, thank you, you are beautful.
