TARSANDS RED RIVER SHOWDOWN: Protester encases arm in concrete!
BREAKING: Lula, OK—Thursday, April 25, 7--A
protester with the group Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance has stopped
construction of the Keystone XL pipeline by locking his arm into a
concrete capsule buried directly in the pipeline’s proposed path.
Fitzgerald Scott, 42, is the first African American to risk arrest while
physically blockading TransCanada’s dangerous tar sands pipeline, and
the second person to take action this week. On Monday a 61 year old man
locked himself to a piece of construction equipment effectively shutting
down another Oklahoma pipeline construction site. This week of action,
called the “Red River Showdown,” is intended to protect the Red River,
which marks the border between Oklahoma and Texas and is a major
tributary of the Mississippi.
