Jerome said, “I'm the father of 3 daughters and the grandfather of 5 grandsons. I'm horrified by what climate change is already doing to Earth. I'm even more horrified that we still envision and construct projects like MVP which will worsen the warming and deepen the chaos.”
After the 3 hour long extraction, Jerome was arrested and has since been released. Jerome's bail was set at $35,000. This is a very expensive bail condition, where typical bails have been in the $2000 range. Especially considering the misdemeanor charge.

“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!”
