Lancaster Anti-Pipe Protesters Sell Protest Camp to Pipeline Co.

In March, MDN told you about a small group of radical protesters who established a protest “camp” on a private farm along the path of the Williams $3 billion, 198-mile Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline in Lancaster County, PA (see Protesters Try to Resurrect Failed ND Pipeline Fight in Lancaster). Some of the so-called protesters had previously participated in illegal protests in Standing Rock, North Dakota, against the Dakota Access Pipeline being built there. Channeling that protest, the crazies in Lancaster stenciled “WELCOME TO THE STAND” across the side of the barn on the farm where they decided to form a new/illegal protest camp–hinting at what’s to come. The protesters were using the farm location to stash food, water, toilet paper, condoms…whatever. Hippie protesters need supplies, man. Well guess what? The farm’s owners, sympathetic to the protesters’ aim to block Atlantic Sunrise–just sold their farm to Atlantic Sunrise. How’s that for principled protest? Yep–gotta stop that evil pipeline from ruinin’ the pristine cornfields in Lancaster County–unless the price is right. And then it doesn’t matter…
