Based on a report out of Hampton, seimic 'thumper' trucks were spotted on Highway #1 past marker 143 earlier this afternoon. They were last seen traveling in an eastwardly direction. Local residents and leaders from the region met later to discuss the presence of the vehicles. They ask friends and other citizens to be aware of the current situation on the highway outside of town and to begin building support against the intrusion of the shale and natural gas industries into their community and throughout our province.

On Tuesday October 11 at 3:30 pm there will be a peaceful demonstration at the Hampton sign "It's Our Nature" one km before the Hampton exit on the Saint John side.  No cars will be blocked and all actions will keep within the law.  Everyone who can make it is invited to join us in solidarity.  PLEASE let any media connections know.
