FROM 11:00AM TILL 1:00PM EVERY THURSDAY
Dear Shale Gas Opponents of New Brunswick,
On Wednesday August 10th, we held our first Sidewalk Protest, and people from as far as Saint John area attended.
Over the past weeks, the New Brunswick Government has heard from many groups and individuals, who spoke out and said “No” and “Stop to Shale Gas”.
So far, there is no sign that our government is listening to us. We are still being told there will be no moratorium. This is unacceptable and undemocratic. One of the few peaceful things we can do is resist by gathering together and making ourselves be seen, growing in number week by week, and talking to our neighbours.
We would like to make the SIDEWALK PROTEST a recurring event, so that the news do not quiet down:
We will be OUTSIDE in front of the Centennial Building every Thursday, starting August 18th, between 10am and 2 pm, so that people can see us with our signs! Please tell your neighbours and friends and come out to join the protest!
As of October 6, after 9 weeks of weekly recurring protests, we are changing the hours of the sidewalk protest to 11 am to 1 pm, due to the weather turning colder.
We all drink water, and nobody of us wants to have one of the “one or two wells, being planned to put in place over the next year” in their backyard or community!
Please circulate this message to as many people you can and bring along a friend!
See you next Thursday!
