Where’s a runaway bulldozer when you need one?
HOPKINS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) – A group of protestors chained themselves to construction equipment on Wednesday to delay construction on the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The construction site is off CR 3532, west of Mount Vernon in Hopkins County.
Protestors with Tars Sand Blockade say they are happy to have stopped construction for the day, but they are not done yet.
“I really see this as my chance to stand up and do something,” says protestor, Sarah Reid.
By chaining themselves to large work equipment Tar Sands Blockade hopes to stop the construction of the TransCanada pipeline one day at a time.
“We love this state. We love the land, the water, the air and the nature. We just can’t accept for it to be destroyed by people whose only concern is to make a profit,” says protestor, Gary Stuard
