Antis Plan a Weekend Campout to Protest Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline

Anti-fossil fuel protesters (some of them paid) will go on a camp-out in Amish country (Lancaster County, PA) beginning this Friday to protest the imminent start of construction for the Williams Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline project. The same group built themselves a magic tree house along the planned route of the pipeline (see PA Antis Build 2nd Magic Tree House to Stop Atlantic Sunrise Pipe). Then the bottom dropped out of their world. Last Friday the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a final authorization to begin construction (see Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline Gets Final Approval by FERC). Williams still needs permits from the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. However, permits from PA & the Army Corps is perfunctory. The only thing antis can do now is attempt to gin up hundreds (or thousands) of people to attempt an illegal blockade to prevent construction of the pipeline. You know, a “peaceful” act of civil disobedience, like that in North Dakota (see Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters Turn Violent; Coming Here Next?). So beginning Friday the antis will grab their sleeping bags and head to the magic tree house…
