The pipeline that’s meant to run from Canada all the way down to Texas isn’t even 75% complete and it’s already causing major problems. 1,040,000 gallons of oil has already been spilled and millions of dollars has been spent trying to clean it up to no avail.
Large numbers of Americans have gathered in D.C, have held public meetings, created online videos, and some have even locked themselves to equipment in protest of the pipeline. Every action by protesters has been peaceful and non-violent, however, they’re being labeled terrorists.
“TransCanada is trying to paint concerned citizens as abusive, aggressive law breakers when in fact that describes themselves. They are giving presentations to the FBI and local law enforcement making us out to be criminals and telling our local law enforcement they should be looking at terrorism laws as possible ways to prosecute us.”
Need reason to worry about the NSA spying scandal? Try this: you legally protest an oil company in y our town, are arrested, and wind up in court facing federal terrorism charges and a personal eternity behind bars. The evidence presented against you was gathered by the NSA monitoring of your telephone usage and social media communications, all at the behest of said oil company, which owns every Senator who sits on the Intelligence Committee in Washington D.C.
Think it can’t happen?
It’s already happening.
