From Embers

Sep 27, 2018

A few weeks ago the From Embers crew took a road trip out east for the Halifax Anarchist Bookfair and to visit friends and family. We had the opportunity to visit the Treaty Camp established by Mi'kmaq  people to protect the Shubenacadie River from an Alton Gas Natural Gas Project.

I sat down with Dale Poulette who is one of the people holding down the camp on a daily basis. He cut his teeth at the anti-fracking reclamation camp in Elsipogtog (Rexton).

Dale describes daily life at the camp, tells some funny stories, and opens up about the importance of ceremony, where he gets his strength and his take on the future of this world.

The song at the end is "We Shall Remain (It Wasn't Taken Away)" by Kalolin Johnson from Eskasoni, Cape Breton.
