The Muskrat Falls protest may be over, but another one is ongoing at this hour.

Protestors are outside the Sheshatshiu Band Council office, demanding an election within the next two weeks.

Helen Andrew told The Labradorian a short time ago that she and roughly 20 others are demanding that Chief Andrew Penashue call an election.

“(An) election is overdue and we’re not satisfied with the Chief and Band Council because they didn’t show support for protestors at Muskrat Falls,” said Andrew.

Earlier today, a five-day protest ended at Muskrat Falls, following an incident where a young Innu worker was allegedly kicked in the head by a co-worker who was wearing steel-toed boots.

During the demonstration, Innu protestors barricaded the entrance to the Muskrat Falls work site, only allowing emergency vehicles to enter. The protestors were calling for better treatment of Innu workers and for more job opportunities for Labradorians.

The Labradorian will bring you more details on this latest protest later today.
