Centennial Building shale gas protest - week 6

Upwards of 50 people came and went over the course of the four hour anti-shale gas protest at the Centennial Building in Fredericton today. Citizens representing communities from the city and the surrounding areas alternated between anti-shale gas chants and slogans, while kibbutzing with local politicians on hand from the Green, NDP and Liberal parties. The protesters are not giving up and vow to continue their struggle for the ban of shale gas in New Brunswick into the cold winter months.
