BREAKING: Two blockaders - Glen Collins & Matt Almonte - have barricaded themselves inside the Keystone XL Pipeline to protest its inevitable environmental destruction.

Police are threatening to lift the pipe to remove them and to bring in canine units, as well as tear gas them out of the pipe. “Doing so would cause serious harm or even death; Matt and Glen are locked between two barrels of concrete which weigh over six hundred pounds each.”

“I’m barricading this pipe with Tar Sands Blockade today to say loud and clear to the extraction industry that our communities and the resources we depend on for survival are not collateral damage,” said Collins, another blockader inside the pipe and an organizer with Radical Action for Mountain Peoples Survival (RAMPS) and Mountain Justice, grassroots campaigns in Appalachia working to stop mountaintop removal coal mining.
