Rose Abramoff From Scientist Rebellion Locks Down at the Mountain Valley Pipeline

First, we saw two climate protectors lock on Tuesday morning. They were joined by none other than Peter Kalmus of NASA, who was not locking on, but did rally his 300,000 online followers to join.
It was not long before another wave lockdowns occurred, this time 4 Grandmas in rocking chairs, and Peter’s contemporary, Rose Abramoff, of Science Rebellion and one other, making six.
Peter said, “We're on a path to lose everything, and it's because these ignorant people in power want every last bit of profit even as the living Earth burns and dies around us.”
Rose locked on, and remained for several hours before she was finally extracted and jailed. She was bailed out soon after.
Rose had this to say, “I’m an Earth scientist. I study how climate change and human land use affects ecosystems like the one that the Mountain Valley Pipeline is ripping its way through. We are desperate, we are out of time, so we are rising up."


   Given what’s transpired this week, with RICO charges against Stop Cop City autonomous forest defenders, and these actions carry that much more weight. It says that folks in XR and Third Act, and other groups around the country, will not stand by and watch as young kids risk everything to save forests while a fascist state cracks down on them as if they were terrorists.
   Defending land from destruction is not a terrorist act. It is an act of love, and protection, for all things.
