About:

Je suis une journaliste indépendante formée par le travail de terrain des luttes alternatives et radicales. J'ai travaillé collectivement durant la dernière année et je me remets à produire seule certains photoreportages d'événements et enregistrements vidéo de conférences. Je suis préoccupéEs par la défense de la terre et de sa biodiversité ainsi que par la protection et la création de modes de vie soutenables tout comme de relations égalitaires entre les humainEs. Je couvre principalement des événements anticolonialistes, féministes et/ou antispécistes. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgK0tvTZQbPg43BUa96CmVw http://www.flickr.com/photos/77722734@N08/ (Photo du profil prise par Guillaum Gibault, photographe naturaliste)

Worrying...

"We could have been occupying this park... and not let Enbridge workers come in. We haven't done that... because we want peace, from your government. From Harper and Marois."

So you people just DON'T want to resist and wanna let the train pass. Because you want "peace"...

Of course, the State, its corporations and its police only want peace.

Social peace. As in "total domination", and the possibility for all their corporate affiliates to have it their way with the land, just as they do with people's bodies. Unchallenged, and unaccounted for. After all, that's "neoliberalism", isn't it?

Furthermore... who is that "We"!? I know for a fact there's many Natives across Canada who really don't agree with this self-defeating posturing, that allows the fat cats to do whatever they want with the land.

Thanks for your comment but...

when anticolonial anarchists in «Quebec» will do something else than symbolic actions like demos, attacking ATM and putting paint on walls, I will consider more seriously their critics.

A decent jab that needs

A decent jab that deserves consideration... :)  especially given the apparent lack of concrete resistance from Montreal.

But ATM sabotage is more than just symbolic, unless you consider economic damage as "symbolic action" too, which is partly right. It's rather a blurry notion, actually.
