Water Warriors is the story of a multicultural community's successful effort starting in 2013 to protect their water against oil and natural gas industry exploration and drilling. The unlikely warriors, who included members of the Mi'kmaq Elsipogtog First Nation, French-speaking Acadians, and white English-speaking families, set up a series of road blockades to prevent exploration. After months of resistance their efforts not only halted drilling, but helped elect a new government, and won an indefinite moratorium on fracking in the province which is known for its forestry, farming and fishing industries -- commercial and small-scale subsistence operations that rural communities depend on.
