High in some trees atop Peters Mountain in Monroe County sits a small group of passionate and dedicated protesters doing what they can to delay or stop construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
“We couldn’t let it just happen,” a treetop pipeline protester told Matt Combs of the Register-Herald in Beckley.
About a half a dozen protesters are taking turns in the trees along the mountain ridge near the Appalachian Trail. A small group on the ground is providing food and support. They all deserve credit for their dedication and passion toward doing what they believe they must do.
