Pipeline fight must stay within the law

(Continued)

We haven’t seen this type of direct action along the proposed pipeline route — yet. And we hope it won’t come to that. 

The three landowners who filed trespassing reports did the right thing. We only hope this doesn’t become a common occurrence. 

We do not blame landowners who are frustrated by what they see as infringements on their rights. But we cannot condone the tactics that were undertaken in the 1980s to fight Marcy South, either. As the pipeline process moves forward, we urge parties on both sides to respect and uphold the law.
