I just wish the report was that "thousands" stormed PHMSA instead of dozens :( Noted and shared.

With the massive amount of propaganda around the pipeline here, I think it's surprising that any are informed and show up.

Thank you, Cal! I agree with Susan and Kit. I only wish I had the freedom and courage to join them. Unfortunately, Google couldn't connect to Ecowatch. I used Bing and found it on Common Dreams! I love Tar Sands Blockade the group created by people from Oklahoma and Texas who use nonviolent methods of resistance.

Good for them but I think you need a couple of hundred thousand to make any effect

Good for them. There was one comment left at the actual site by a supposed John Doe saying that he was at the site and there were only five people. No other comments - he also said that no one spilled anything but anyone can easily check newspaper and TV reports online to verify that statement...somehow I think that comment deserves cynicism.

Good for them and good for the rest of us that there are people who will go and speak up! Thanks for letting us know. No matter what we can't allow that pipeline to be built. It will be the final nail in our collective coffin in the US I think.

We already have a record breaking "Dead Zone" in the gulf. The next zone won't be fish, it will be us.
Killing the oceans is going to kill us too, but the pipeline will be a more direct way to wipe the humans out, I believe.

Noted w/thanks, Cal. Of course, I too, wish there were thousands there--just have to get the word out better. College kids are the best with their social networking; we need to get more onboard.
