On November 13, a court gave tree-sitters protesting the Mountain Valley gas Pipeline, four days to end their action and come down. They have not. On Novermber 19th,the same judge found them in contempt of court with a fine of $500 a day, every day they remain.

Activists who oppose the Mountain Valley Pipeline are living in the Jefferson National Forest, hoping to delay the project. Two tree sitters have been on Peters Mountain in West Virginia for more than a month.  And one woman has been living on a monopod, in a section of forest where pipeline construction is slated to take place.
