STATEMENT REGARDING ATTACKS AGAINST MI’KMAW LOBSTER FISHERS IN NOVA SCOTIA

Christian Peacemaker Teams condemns the violation of treaty rights and recent attacks against the lobster fishers of Sipekne’katik First Nation in Nova Scotia. We demand: The federal government to intervene and ensure that the Mi’kmaw lobster fishers can enact the rights recognized in the Treaty of 1752 and so sustain their livelihood; the Department of Fisheries and Oceans must publicly recognize the legitimacy of the Mi’kmaw Fishery operation; and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police must stop and prevent the attacks on Mi’kmaw lobster fishers.
