Act Out! [125] - How Low They’ll Fracking Go + If You Don’t Like Antifa, Watch This

This week on Act Out! we head to Camp White Pine to get you an update on the latest in the fight against the Mariner East 2 Pipeline and Energy Transfer Partners. Elise Gerhart breaks down the recent hold on construction as we show you the criss-cross of pipelines already surrounding the Gerhart property – not to mention the entire state of Pennsylvania.

With the help of FracTracker, we outline the dangers of existing and proposed pipelines due to the highly combustible nature of the gases carried in liquid form by these toxic pipelines. The real lowdown comes from an unbelievable ploy by ETP to smear and spread lies about pipeline resisters. In the case of fighting pipelines, truth really is stranger than fiction.

Next up, we don't have to see eye-to-eye, but in the wake of fascism's rise, we DO need to agree on one basic thing. Hold your comments till the end and let’s just see if we can find some common ground in the midst of this divide and conquer storm. As long as we’re mutually against fascism and the rise of horrendous racism, bigotry and white supremacy in this country, we CAN work together – indeed, we must.
