Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

In October of 2016 the numbers protesting Muskrat Falls project grew. Hundreds rallied against the multi billion dollar energy project claiming safety concerns for their land and people. I flew up for one night large October but stayed over a week. 30 plus protesters broke down gates, avoided arrest and took refuge in the site forcing Nalcor to temporarily shut down operations. It was a week of staking out the protest site, never knowing what protesters had planed next. This is the final story, when a meeting with the premier resulted in the protesters exiting Muskrat Falls. I was sent to Labrador alone, as a videographer.
