A Rigolet woman who was one of the first group of protesters at the Muskrat Falls site to get arrested last fall made a brief appearance in Happy Valley-Goose Bay court today.
Charlotte Wolfrey spoke outside the courtroom this afternoon. She says she didn’t believe she’d broken an injunction or was trespassing and was simply standing up for her rights as an indigenous person.
She says they have a right to protect the land and water for future generations.
Eight other people similarly charged in that initial arrest are scheduled to appear in court April 17, while another group, including Independent Editor Justin Brake are scheduled to appear on April 11.
