ABORIGINAL JUSTICE URGENT PRAYER
REQUEST: Pray for those involved with
the current fracking dispute in Mi’kmaq and Maliseet First Nations.
Christian Peacemaker Teams has received an urgent invitation
to send a team to the Elsipogtog Reserve in New Brunswick following arrests of
Indigenous and non-Indigenous activists, who are protesting the threat of the
environmentally destructive “fracking” process. Please share the following prayer with your faith
communities and contacts. Follow the CPT Aboriginal Justice Facebook Page for more information as this situation develops.
Pray for Mi’kmaq and Maliseet people and their allies in New Brunswick,
protesting seismic testing and plans for fracking that threatens to contaminate
land and water. Pray for all
involved in the conflict, for courage among supporters, safety for activists,
and what our indigenous partners call “a good mind” for police.
