Watch how the media portrays the standoff between First Nations protesters, and the RCMP in New Brunswick. They talk about the “violent protest”. Was the protest violent until the RCMP showed up with snipers, dogs, and a phalanx of officers? Who is the real instigator of violence? Could the outbreak of it be traced back to a fracking gas company that wants to risk the water supply of the people living there?
The media can spin their little yarn to tell us it’s all about unsophisticated and violent Natives, but you don’t have to buy into their fairy tale. We know they won’t ask deeper questions that get to the heart of the cause of burning police cars. It wouldn’t occur to them for the RCMP to destroy property to cast their adversaries in a negative light. Did that happen in this case? Some people are saying so, and there’s a documented history of Canadian police doing it.
Really, why don’t First Nations in New Brunswick want their water supply put at risk, so outsiders can get fabulously wealthy off the resource under their ground?
