Manitobans demonstrate in solidarity with N.B. First Nation
Manitobans protested in solidarity with New Brunswick First Nations groups.
A group from the Pinaymootang First Nation held a peaceful demonstration on Highway 6. Organizers say they stand in solidarity with the anti-fracking protesters at Elsipogtog in New Brunswick.
Cheyanne Gould stood on the side of the road, holding signs to raise awareness.
"If I can just change one persons mind about anti-fracking, or they can pass the message on to others, then I think we accomplished our goal for today."
Gould said there is no plan to block the highway.
Protesters were planning to stay on the Fairford Dam bridge from 2-5 p.m CT.
