A chain saw would have been cheaper than a cherry picker for those tree sitters!

Nah pepper spray is more eco-friendly since it doesn't use any fuel. This way they can be carbon neutral. lol

Clearfield Gant Daily

Police Respond to Protests Near Well Drilling Site

The Pennsylvania State Police responded to people protesting a Marcellus Shale well drilling site.

According to the state police in Clearfield, members from PSP DuBois, Clearfield, Ridgway and Punxsutawney responded to the site at Colby and Gordon Roads. Police said about 75 people were on site protesting. Colby and Gordon Roads were blocked by downed trees that were placed across numerous locations, which prevented travel to and from the well site.

A bulldozer was brought in to remove the trees. Police said the majority of the protesters dispersed, through three were named in the report. All three named were out of state; one from Vermont, one from Indiana and one from Oregon.

According to Gant news partner WJACTV.com, EQT Corp. spokeswoman Natalie Cox says the company shut down the rig in Moshannon State Forest at midday Sunday. She says the Pittsburgh-based company’s primary concern is the safety of its employees and contractors.

Cox says police are at the site trying to maintain order.

Gloria Forouzan of Marcellus Protest says 150 protesters blocked an access road for trucks headed to the EQT rig.

Sounds like the same incident? The loonies from Earth First were bragging about staging it, on their web site.

a few sound like professional activists
They are and show up for many if not most of the larger protests. The ones arrested showed up and stayed to the bitter end just for the purpose of PR that goes along with being arrested. Twisted as that really is in the eye of a normal society.

They are also not above being Eco-terrorists when they get the right causes and opportunities.

According to the reports, Earth First was involved.

If so, that is what they're all about: Going about the country inflicting themselves on industries with whom they "have a problem". For the most part, that is any industry that is involved in resource extraction, including logging operations.

Pretty much the same mindsets of those involved in the anti-hunting and anti-gun movements: You're all stupid/We know better than you do.

stupid people...no clue

Marcellus Earth First! I have seen the equipment used to build these locations, dragging a couple of sticks across this access road almost looks comical, if these weren't ecoterrorists it would be funny.
EQT did the right thing and handled it correctly, but would have liked to see them unleash a couple of D9's to clear that silly "barricade".
