In order to avoid any misunderstanding, we specify that this text is not intended to criticize the friends of the Coalition Fjord or the various collectives fighting on the territories. It is a text of reflection to push the fight even further. ---- The months go by and the different projects go through the various stages of the great masquerade. Public consultations are multiplying, the MRCs, towns and villages take a stand on the subject to facilitate the implementation of industrial projects. The industry is making its merry way. This is a must-go that can be "boring" for representatives and communications managers, but everything goes as it should. Public consultations are a must for companies. A way to make people believe that they share their information, concerns about projects and they consult us (as if they really took into account the recommendations of citizens). From time to time, there is a BAPE (Office of Public Hearings on the environment), although for Énergir and the gas pipeline that will feed the BlackRock plant in Grand Anse, the BAPE will take place thanks to the efforts put forward by members of the Fjord Coalition). Then, it is the war of which manages to make its point of view. Pages of ads for LNG Quebec, pro-project opinion pieces, lackeys who start a petition to show us how happy they are to be entubered. On the other side, scientists and defenders of the territory who write texts or letters of opinion to demonstrate the absurdity of the various industrial projects planned on the stolen land of Nitassinan. add a little more green varnish (although for Énergir and the pipeline that will feed the BlackRock plant in Grand Anse, the BAPE will take place thanks to the efforts put forward by members of the Coalition Fjord).

Public opinion: the imaginary ally of the pro-projects

As Bourdieu said in a presentation entitled Public opinion does not exist "It is known that any exercise of force is accompanied by a speech aimed at legitimizing the strength of the one who exercises it; it may even be said that the power of all power is to have all its strength only to the extent that it conceals itself as such. In short, to speak simply, the politician is the one who says: "God is with us". The equivalent of "God is with us" is today "public opinion is with us". This is the fundamental effect of the opinion poll: to constitute the idea that there is a unanimous public opinion, thus to legitimize a policy and strengthen the balance of power that underpins or makes it possible. Public opinion, this great scarecrow brandished in all directions. As a God we can not contradict the word. A creation from scratch to fuel the passivity of people. Create a false consensus in society to make any resistance futile. In addition, in "public opinion", the dominant never take into account the opponents. They are not part of society. There is the public opinion and on the other side the opponents to the projects. Society is public opinion, that is to say, those who in the majority (according to their statements and phony surveys) are for projects and outside of that, there are hippie ecologists. Public opinion is not a homogeneous entity that will go down the streets and give us the victory. It is a weapon at the service of the dominant.

Disturb, block, prevent

Eventually, it will have to raise the pressure one notch. To be the rock in the shoe. We must prevent all their meetings from happening peacefully, and at best, cancel them by our presence. Block the project process, make investors doubt and lose as much money as possible. It's the only language they understand. We must ensure that our counter-attack is proportional to the force used by those who want to exploit and destroy our territories and our communities. Their events, their offices and the sites where the projects will take place are all targets to hit. Let's build our power and counter-power!

The Collectif anarchist Emma Goldman, the Defense Committee and decolonization of territories (CDDT) and other accomplices are organizing the next 6 and 7 July weekend workshops and reflection on the destructive projects in Saguenay Lac-St- Jeans.

This weekend of camp is an opportunity to connect people from different regions to learn about the territory and ways to defend it. A mobilization is already organized in the region for several months, between citizen groups, ecologists and students. Now, we are calling for a weekend of camp in order to join those who do not want to wait for the end of the world to mobilize, who want now to organize to defend the territories. Join us on the weekend of July 6 and 7 to develop and think about the rest together.

We are calling on all those concerned with the protection of the Saguenay Fjord to come together to discuss the businesses and projects that threaten it.
