ESS LECTURE SERIES: Miles Howe -- Debriefing Elsipogtog: The Anatomy of a Struggle

Miles Howe is a journalist for the independent Canadian news site, Media Co-Op. He was embedded in the anti-fracking movement spearheaded by the Elsipogtog First Nation and was arrested during the aboriginal resistance headed by the Mi’kmaq Warriors when the peaceful protest erupted into a clash against heavily armed members of the RCMP. His book, Debriefing Elsipogtog: The Anatomy of a Struggle, chronicles how people allied to build the resistance movement and how the state intervened to undermine inherent treaty rights.
