Activists Arrested While Halting Construction on Sunoco Fracked Gas Pipeline in PA

HeadlineJan 07, 2022

In Pennsylvania, two activists were arrested as they shut down construction on the Mariner East pipeline in Chester County. The fracked gas pipeline is being built by Sunoco, which is owned by Energy Transfer Partners, and threatens Marsh Creek Lake, a drinking water source for 1.75 million people. The toxic gases are exported to manufacture plastics overseas. The pipeline has already caused major spills in March Creek, leading to dozens of criminal charges against Energy Transfer Partners.
