One year ago today, brave Labradorians determined to protect the lives, land, animals, and water downstream from the Muskrat Falls project took the ultimate steps forward.

On October 22, 2016 they cut the chain on the gate to the Muskrat Falls work site and walked the 11 kilometers to the work camp and collectively SHUT MUSKRAT DOWN!

These brave walkers, protectors, warriors, and believers took a stand that was heard around the nation! And they did so peacefully!

Justin Brake, independent journalist captured the story from the inside. We thank him for this as it also has led him to defending his freedom of the press rights in court (case ongoing even today!)

Today, one year later, we continue to honour these individuals and the sacrifices they made to protect so much and so many. We thank them for putting their freedom at risk to ensure the future of the next generations of Labradorians <3

Many of these Labradorians are still facing criminal and civil charges for these actions. Many still continue to fight against the Muskrat Falls project. The reservoir is still not cleared. Flooding downstream from north spur and dam failure is still a real concern. Leaders who struck deals from all governments refuse to consult with the people directly impacted.

Please join land protectors this Monday, October 23, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay for a "Rally for Justice" beginning at 9:30am at the Supreme Court where over 20 Labradorians will be in court and then we will proceed to the parking lot of Hotel North 2 where NL Justice Minister Andrew Parsons is hosting a Labrador Justice Summit.
