I hope they get good lawyers and a good judge. They have a right to protest.

There are times when protesting on public property won't get even a mention in the news. However, protest on private property will always get at least a mention, if for nothing else than being arrested. Protesters want, and need, to be noticed to get their point(s) across and let others know there is a problem, where the problem comes from, and put the problem makers on notice.
Read and noted. Thank you.

Noted. So glad to see this many protesting. Another article I read earlier stated that there were many elderly people there...noting a woman of 90 well as kids. Bill McKibbon, from puts his money where his mouth is, and is always among the first arrested at these protests. Kudos to all!

Good on the protesters. Use less oil - go car-free if you can. We need to promote cycling and public transport to reduce oil use.

The devastation tar sands and fracking cause to our environment must be stopped. Tar sands is the filthiest and most toxic substance emitting approximately 80% more CO2 in to the atmosphere. Fracking emits methane which is 20 times more potent then CO2. Our environment is under siege from oil and gas and our government is allowing them carte blanche access to some of the most beautiful areas in our country. We must protect our environment because in doing so we protect ourselves and our children's future.

Since corporations have become people there is no end the crimes they can commit against the earth, animals, and humans.
