Climate Protectors Walk onto Poor Mountain to Stop Work on the Mountain Valley Pipeline

The Daily Rebellion met with them a few hours after the action, and got an exclusive from the frontline:
Anon1, "I think one of them was trying to actually hurt us."
Anon2, "A few of the workers were brazen enough to drive into us with their bulldozers before the work was stopped."

Anon3, "I'm gravely concerned that the United States is working to make natural gas, and fossil fuel infrastructure a permanent feature of the Int'l energy market. I'm worried this pipeline is the foremost signal of that commitment." He continues, "Today was tense, but anyone who studies direct action, and understands the risk involved, knows that this is one of the potential forms of escalation we face."

 

In Solidarity, Will Regan

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
