*IS THE CROWN AT WAR WITH US?*
Friday, Sept 26 at 7:00 PM at Conserver House, 180 St. John St.
It was the summer of 2000 and the country watched with disbelief as federal fishery officers appeared to wage war on the Mi’gmaq fishermen of Esgenoopetitj (Burnt Church), New Brunswick. Why would officials of the Canadian government attack citizens for exercising rights that had been affirmed by the highest court in the land? What happened at Burnt Church? A film by Alanis Obomsawin.
Andrea Bear-Nicholas, professor of native studies at St. Thomas University, will facilitate the discussion after the film.
The film screening is a fundraiser for the Passamaquoddy Legal Defence Fund. The Passamaquoddy people are fighting LNG proposals on their traditional lands. For more information on the Passamaquoddy struggle, visit: www.wetakecareofourland.org
Donations big and small are welcome.
