BREAKING NOW: Protester risks life to stop the impending Enbridge oil spills!
June 24, 2013
A protester has climbed into an oil pipeline at a southern Michigan construction site, and emergency crews are ‘working to get him out’.
The Battle Creek Enquirer reports the man is 25 yards inside the opening of the line near Marshall in Calhoun County’s Fredonia Township. Air is being pushed in toward him, and officials are monitoring carbon monoxide levels at the scene.
The new pipeline endangers public health, considering the Calgary, Alberta-based company’s pipeline ruptured nearby in 2010, spilling 800,000 gallons of oil into a river.
Sounds like a great start to a #fearless summer.
