Members of the Labrador Land Protectors, continuing opposition to the Muskrat Falls power project, have blocked access to Nalcor Energy's headquarters in St. John's.

The statement from the Labrador Land Protectors issued Wednesday morning.

"This is a victory, because today is one day they don't get to destroy people of the province," said Denise Cole, who is part of the group currently barring the main entrance, while watching vehicles pull out of the parking lot at roughly 8 a.m.

Nalcor employees were waiting in the lot, but are leaving after being unable to access the building.

The goal, according to the group, is to meet with CEO Stan Marshall. If he is not in the area, they'll take a senior executive member who can speak with and for him.

All of the doors of the building are currently blocked, as of roughly 7:30 a.m.

More later.
