    Default PA Nuns Build Chapel To Block Pipleine

    All of the Adorers’ communities, including this one in Pennsylvania’s rural Lancaster County, agree to conduct their business transactions in keeping with the principles of ecological justice the sisters drafted in 2005, known as their “land ethic.” The nuns have joined in protesting hydroelectric power in Brazil and worked with Guatemalans opposed to gold mining.
    So when a surveyor for Williams came by to tell the nuns that he was checking out their land for the company’s Atlantic Sunrise pipeline that will eventually cut across 183*miles of Pennsylvania, the nuns turned to their land ethic, and they told the surveyor that they couldn’t even discuss it.

    Business is two-faced when it comes to property ownership..and what they want.

    Lots of homeless people might want to use the businessman's land or property or buildings for their desires.....yet nobdy gives them kind of eminent domain.......abandoned businesses all over yet people who have lost homes can't just come in there and offer them $2 to remodel it and make it livable for their financial and economic benefit.

    The pipeline should have to pay 1000x what the land is worth to go thru anybody's property.
    They don't own the world.

    23 arrested here this week..I saw the Lancaster newspaper on our breakroom tables....
    Not many youngsters arrested on this one....majority 55 and older....maybe the majority is actually over 60.
    Authorities release names of 21 protesters arrested after blocking start of Atlantic Sunrise gas pipeline construction | Local News | lancasteronline.com

    "While any arrest is a matter to be taken seriously, the protesting individuals were extremely cooperative and peaceful in their behavior today," Hambright said Monday.
    "Our police officers strived to reciprocate that same level of respect in their dealings with the individuals," he said.

    Our Local has some good paying work on this pipeline........Even though it would cost the company money.....to me it is wrong that they can't go a route which the owners of the land may accept them going through for fair money....They shouldn't go thru property in which the owner is adamantly against it....too bad if it costs more....they should have to go around.
