Muskrat Falls protester Marjorie Flowers no longer under house arrest
'I feel like I've let myself be defeated'
After ten days at Her Majesty's Penitentiary and then almost a month confined to her home, Marjorie Flowers can go where she wants — albeit with one significant restriction.

"I feel like I've made the wrong decision here today," she said, shortly after her release.
"I feel like I've let myself be defeated."
Flowers and two other Muskrat Falls protesters were taken to jail in St. John's late last month after refusing to abide by an existing injunction.
Now, as a condition of her release, Flowers is required to uphold that court order as well as an undertaking she signed in November forbidding her from going within one kilometer of the megaproject.
If Flowers disobeys the injunction, she will be arrested immediately.
"The court system has been used to support this corporation — the Nalcor dictatorship," Flowers said.
"And what chance do I have against a court system?"
Flowers didn't break any of her conditions while under house arrest, something the judge referenced during Tuesday's proceedings.
Flowers will next appear in court Sept. 12.
Jim Learning and Eldred Davis — the two people who were sent to prison at the same time as Flowers — have hearings scheduled for Wednesday.
