A spokesperson for protesters against hydro-fracking and seismic testing in New Brunswick is accusing police of favouring the company doing the work.
So far 30 people have been charged, the latest 12 who were arrested on Friday have been released from police custody and face charges of mischief.
Amy Sock, who helped organize the demonstrations on Route 126, south of Rogersville N.B., questions whose side the police are on.
"Every time I deal with them, they’re so angry. Like I know they’re trying to do their job and whatnot, but at the same time, why are you protecting a truck, rather than protecting a little boy, or a native lady, or a French lady or an English lady? Like, why is that?" said Sock.
RCMP Cpl. Chantal Farrah told the CBC yesterday that police are supportive of a peaceful protest, but they will continue to arrest demonstrators who block traffic.
Sock said demonstrators will continue their protest.
"We won’t try and stop them, we're going to go and sing and drum because we heard that it affects the monitor, like what they’re trying to get, the information. So I think Mother Earth wants to hear our drums anyway and we’re going to keep on doing that, everyday if it takes," she said.
