On February 26, Mountain Valley Pipeline LLC set out to continue preparation for a horizontal drill pad on the West Virginia side of Peters Mountain — but they found that a number of resisters had already taken to the trees. The tree sit is stationed near Peterstown, WV, on the site where the company intends for the 42-inch pipeline to cross under the Appalachian National Scenic Trail.
The proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline would carry fracked gas from shale fields in West Virginia to intersect with the existing Transco Pipeline, a major highway for transporting gas to markets overseas. The pipeline would destroy water, mountains, forests, and family farms. Neither West Virginians nor Virginians will see any of the profit — instead, they will bear the destructive consequences of extraction and construction.
“We stand here to protect both the mountain and all those who rely on the mountain’s water system. We stand against the destructive motive of this project and all others like it.”
