The Labrador Land Pro­tec­tors (LLP) rang in the new year at the Muskrat Falls main gate and or­ga­niz­ers said it went great.

One of the goals of the rally was to send the mes­sage to gov­ern­ment lead­ers of all lev­els that the pro­tec­tors are Labrador strong and united, or­ga­niz­ers said.

“The bat­tle cry is clear; it is time to shut Muskrat Down for good!!” said Denise Cole, one the or­ga­niz­ers of the event. “No more dams, no more Labrador in­jus­tice, and no more al­low­ing Nal­cor to de­stroy the mighty Grand River! There are so many things wrong with the damming of Muskrat Falls, shut­ting it down is the only way to make it right! We are a peo­ple united and we will never be di­vided! And this, my friends, is what democ­racy looks like!”
