Beatrice Hunter is an Innu Grandmother who had been battling with the community against the crown corporation Nalcor Energy to protect her traditional territory of Nitassinan. The community has been protesting over flooding as well with concerns over methylmercury contamination. Beatrice was sentenced to 10 days for participating in a protest on May 22nd of this year.
Despite the fact that Beatrice is serving a very short sentence for non-violent peaceful protesting and exercising her constitutional rights the crown has relocated her 1,000 kilometers from her community and placed her into a maximum security men’s prison.
The following message is from Beatrice Hunter who is presently incarcerated in Her Majesty’s Penitentiary, St John’s Canada.
Please show your support for Beatrice Hunter and all other imprisoned activists, revolutionaries, warriors and other political prisoners.
