Not that anyone from GoDubois will read this, but I'll post some facts here since so many (including Dubeditor, Keyser Soze & Old Rooster who were NOT at the scene) THINK they actually know whats was going on.
No one drove the protest from Oregon, they were already in the state for another 7 day function elsewhere. Some were from Dimock PA, and if you know anything about fracking, you know the water troubles that Dimock has had from drilling and fracturing. Many were from other parts of PA too.
Only one SUV was there that I saw and it was not anything big, most drove Subarus, Hondas and a couple hybrids. The State police cars at the lower site were left running the whole time. There were many people in each protests vehicle. Many also work or are in college, it wasn't a bunch of unemployed hippies as some are saying.
Classified chemicals are being injected in the ground near the DuBois reservor and some are complaining about people pissing and crapping? Yes, makes perfect sense for this area. As if the thousands of dear and other wildlife use public restrooms.
All the trees were dead-fall, nothing was cut.
The well workers are from Alaska, but I don't see anyone complaining about the local jobs being lost which is kind of silly. Again, very common for this area to not look at what was actually going on.
State police were pretty kind and respectful considering the situation. I'm sure they would have rather been elsewhere but it comes with the job.
All this information was available at the actual protest site, all you had to do was ask instead of sitting behind your computer putting out all your (false) theories. Have to wonder why no newspaper were there when something this big was going on in their backyard.
