Headline from the Daily GRRR!:

The site of a proposed valve installation has been occupied since 7 a.m. Tuesday morning. Blockaders are maintaining their commitment to defend the watershed of the Antler (Thames) river and all waterways and ecosystems that Line 9 crosses and that suffer from tar sands extraction. Line 9 is slated to carry tar sands bitumen and fracked bakken shale oil eastward from Sarnia to Montreal.

The risks of these oils poses a grave threat to ecosystems and communities along the line's entire route. As blockaders prepare for the long haul, they have planteda. garden on site--which is part of what was a farmer's field prior to enbridge's construction. Supporters are encouraged to come to the site! Information and directions are posted to damline9.tumblr.com Stay tuned for more on this after headlines.
