Petro Metro valve turners

On October 11, 2016, five brave individuals turned the emergency shut off valves of the major tar sands pipelines in the USA, effectively shutting 15% of  the oil used in a day. Now these activists, three support people, are facing multiple felony charges, with maximum sentences ranging from 10-81 years in prison!  Additionally, one documentarian is facing multiple misdemeanor charges in Minnesota.
But this isn’t just about criminal charges and the legal process. This is about how we stand up and take serious action in a time of denial, with the fossil fuel industry now not only controlling the government of the US, but actually being the government of the US. This is about how we not only support those who have taken risk already, it’s about how we find the courage within us to move to that next step ourselves.
