Mi'kmaq Women Shut Down Energy Minister Briefing

We sit at our computers,

using words & bytes & testimony,
We claim rights to land
the town would just as soon give away
to fossil suckers,
sucking the guts from our Mother Earth,
then running pipelines
through our neighbor's yard,
through the aquifer that gives us our drinking water,
the pristine countryside I fell in love with
so many years ago,
was not supposed to become slave to energy brokers,
Canadian (therefore not suspect...most Canadians are good people...)
No, I refer to the energy czars of Canada's monopolistic ownership.

Just had a dose of sunshine...fresh air.
This video I watched last night,
thankful the woman born of thunder
is drumming  to these 
fossil suckers.
