October 2013 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police descended on a peaceful anti-fracking protest led by the Mi’kmaq of Elsipogtog and their allies… 

Wait, does the SGC mean something different in canada than it does in the UK? (It’s a white power symbol over there)

It’s the Grand Council Flag of the Mi’kmaq Nation, not the Saint George’s Cross

Wow…my mistake entirely. I feel like such a horrendous ass for a fuckup like that.

Haha, don’t worry. You can’t really be expected to know all flags and symbols, and by asking about it you now know about one more! :D

“October 2013 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police descended on a peaceful anti-fracking protest led by the Mi’kmaq of Elsipogtog and their allies. In this film the voices of some of the people involved in the anti-fracking movement talk about what happened and why they took the stand against hydraulic fracturing and how the heavy handed police response has affected their people.”
