Things are escalating today.

The racist mob have taken to boats and they are removing Mi'gmaq lobster traps and buoys from the water. The only thing left are ropes.

DFO and RCMP are not stopping them.

Mi'kmaq with tremendous restraint again... not sure how much longer though.
Mi'kmaq are responding by shutting down the highway and railroad near Millbrook First Nation today. When they go low... we block the highway. Fugg em

There's also a lobster sale that happened today. Not sure but I think that's also already over.

I see a people sharing some great resources from news articles and infographics. They're kind of spread out all over the place, so I will ask that you post your resources as a reply to this tweet and I will embed this tweet in my threads.

Thank you in advance!!
Yo @JoelyBalazs I saw you sharing all kinds of great links with info on Clearwater. Can you repost them here?

Just catching up on a few things I missed yesterday:

CW: Elder Abuse

Yesterday an old man smacked sage out of a Mi'gmaw Elder's hands. He also smacked a phone out of another woman's hands and was generally threatening and racist.

He should fucking know better.
CW: sexual assault

Also saw reports that an L'nu woman was sexually assaulted by a settler fisherman at a protest yesterday. I believe the man who did it has been identified but I can't find the post anymore and not sure what else came of it.
CW: stalking and intimidation

Saw one report of the settler fishermen following Mi'gmaq home and trying to intimidate them. They eventually turned and went on their way, but still a worrying development.

(Also, didn't they spend all day drinking yesterday? Who was driving? 👀)

Seems like there is a similar situation starting to unfold tonight again.

I believe it is at a different pound this time, but I'm not entirely sure.

The people who are on watch are reporting that there's another large mob of settlers who are there getting drunk and beligerent.
It's hard to keep up with what's happening in all the live videos.

In this one, a bunch of drunk settler fishermen got caught trying to sneak around the back of the pound.…

One thing is consistent though: Mi'gmaq are outnumbered and we need backup.
There's a large drunken mob of settlers starting to get more aggressive now.

They're throwing rocks at Mi'gmaq now.

Same woman who had her van torched last night had the windshield in her other vehicle smashed tonight.…

Okay I'm going to take a break for a little bit. Please do take a gander at my tweets outlining a couple techniques for boosting the algorithm and dealing with trolls and try implementing them. I've hidden tweets from trolls on my posts, so there's some practice for you.

There's a couple ways to influence the Twitter algorithm. For maximum reach, here's what I suggest:

1. Like posts.
2. Leave replies. Tagging people seems to help.
3. Quote Tweet. (I Retweet your Quote Tweets)
4. Use embedded links to connect several posts and threads together.
5. Like and retweet your own tweets and quote tweets.
I should also note that this is a pretty good way to spread awareness about issues, but it's also a really exhausting way to use Twitter. You are basically multiplying the number of notifications and mentions you will receive, so be sure to take breaks and care for yourself.

One way you can help out if you see racists spouting their bullshit on posts is to quote tweet them instead of replying. It usually drags their attention away from the initial post.

Keep baiting, QTing, and reporting them until they get fed up or suspended. That's what I do.
