HeadlineApr 25, 2017
H11 tree protest

And at Camp White Pine in Pennsylvania, residents and activists have launched ongoing 24-hour tree-sits to try to block the construction of Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 pipeline, which would carry fracked gas from the Marcellus Shale in Ohio across Pennsylvania to an export facility on the East Coast. Multiple residents and activists are currently suspended in trees in Huntingdon County in efforts to prevent workers from clearcutting the forest to make way for the pipeline.
