Our allies working in Pennsylvania have been resisting the Tennessee Pipeline from going through Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. This video highlights their struggle as they occupied the road on Cummins Hill to stop workers from clear cutting the trees on the easement.
But their fight is not over! Visit NoTennesseePipeline.blogspot.com for more info about the campaign, the resistance, and how to contribute to their supplies and bail funds.
The Quest For Sustainability With Pike County

Imagine living in a place that’s so serene that when you open your eyes… you’ll swear you are standing inside of your dream. Of course you don’t want to awake, only to pinch yourself standing in all the Glory that has been given for your eyes to see. You touch the air with your tongue and run your fingers through the soil invoking all its minerals.
Oil pipelines have been in the news a lot this past year, between the proposed Keystone XL pipeline and various publicized oil spills. Potential human health effects of these spills are one of the concerns frequently raised, so I decided to take a fairly high-level look at the potential risks by hitting the road for our “Quest for Sustainability” series. I made the journey up to Pike County, Pennsylvania just outside of Upstate NY where describing the mountains as beautiful is a complete understatement. This is the part 1 of a story of a small town in Milford PA who wants to keep their water clean, air free of toxins and of course pipeline free.
