Please Support Incarcerated Indigenous Labrador Land Defender Beatrice Hunter

Beatrice Hunter

Thank you Matthew Behrens for creating this graphic and post (from Ottawa: Make Muskrat Right)

Following statement was issued from the Labrador Land Defenders on May 29, 2017.

While Trudeau tries to make it look like he cares about Indigenous people while meeting with the Pope, back at home, an Indigenous woman, Beatrice Hunter is thrown in jail for trying to save the future of her land and people from a Trudeau-backed megaproject at Muskrat Falls.

Please write and call the Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador Dwight Ball, who is ALSO Minister of Labrador, Intergovernmental, and Indigenous Affairs
dwightball@gov.nl.ca
(709) 729-3570

Demand of Premier Ball
1. Immediate release of Beatrice Hunter
2. Dropping of all charges against Labrador Land Protectors and lifting of the anti-democratic injunction against land protectors brought by NALCOR Energy
3. Cancel the Muskrat Falls hydro project because it is too dangerous in the short and long term, whether from catastrophic collapse of the North Spur (which is built on quick clay, which moves) or from methyl mercury poisoning.

This is what I believe, if any of the Labrador Land Protectors server jail time than it’s to show that we’re fearless and to make us stronger, it’s not to teach us a lesson.” – Beatrice Hunter, May 26, 2017

I am going to the gate tomorrow at 10 am hope to see you there, have to stand by a good honest man, Darren Hill, he’s put his job and livelihood on the line for his people. Stand beside him. I will not live in fear of court or arrest anymore, we are doing the right thing, saving lives, and babies who aren’t even born yet, innocents.” – Beatrice Hunter, May 19, 2017
