Today from a Mennonite group in Pennsylvania, Lancaster Against Pipelines: This morning we continued to defend our constitutional right to clean air and clean water by employing peaceful, creative, Civil Disobedience. More than 40 of us woke before dawn and used our vehicles to block the entrance of an active Williams construction site in Manor Township. We called it a Block Party!
I am continually amazed by the courage of the fossil fuel pipeline protestors, aka Water Protectors. If you missed the news last week, this is from Lakota People’s Law Project: “Great news! 42,000 people have signed the petition to #DropDAPLCharges. Many attorneys have worked long hours and 400 of 800-plus charges have been dropped. North Dakota’s judges see that the accusations against water protectors are baseless. Your stand with Standing Rock is making a big difference.”
