In retaliation against a violent police raid this morning on a peaceful First Nations blockade, Mi'kmaq warriors and supporters have fought back.
As of the time of writing this, six RCMP vehicles have been torched, and melees of stones have been hurled in response to tear gas, plastic bullets, and pepper spray from the RCMP. Mi'kmaq allies have also confiscated fracking equipment in continued efforts to maintain the blockade against the gas company.

Heavily-armed RCMP officers moved against a Mi'kmaq-led blockade in New Brunswick on Thursday, leading to a violent clash with anti-fracking protesters said to be "willing to die" to hold their position.
