On June 13, 2014, the Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group (NSPIRG) convened a rally in support of Pictou Landing First Nation and Solidarity Halifax members were present to show our support. The following Monday morning, June 16, Solidarity Halifax and NSPIRG organized an information picket at the corner of Barrington St and Duke St to show our support for Pictou Landing First Nation and raise awareness about what is at stake.
The Halifax Media Coop covers the June 13 rally.
