Postscript: As of Thursday August 7 at 9:30 AM the courageous and intrepid occupiers are occupying.
Details (including info on rides) at: #DamLine9 (and maybe just hum a few bars of "Oxford town, Oxford town, [not] everybody got their heads bowed down.").
A-and some thoughtful commentary by Laura McDonald at Alternatives Journal.
Jono's action took place in January 2013. I finally caught up with it on July 26 with a report of his sentencing in The Guardian.
Was it mentioned in The Guardian before this? Yes it was and I didn't see it. Why not I wonder?
This came in July (but not in the Envvironment section); and this in one of their blogs in August; and this as 'News' in September.
The first I find in the Environment section is in November 2013 when he's tried and pleads not guilty - ten months after the fact.
I didn't notice any of them. David Suzuki obviously knew. How did he find out?
I thought I was up-to-date on these issues. Obviously not.
The image of someone holding a sign saying "I STAND WITH JONATHAN MOYLAN" at the top of this post is of David Suzuki. By the time I heard of it there was no point in making one of my own.
And what use anyway is some worn-out old fuck too lame and afraid to leave this room except to go for an Internet fix and the barest essentials - food & toilet paper. Boo hoo.
Didn't get up to Ottawa to see what happened with Chief Beau Dick either. No excuses.
A-and there was another occupation of an Enbridge Line-9 site in Cambridge a week or so ago. There was a note in Angela's Greenspiration. Rising Tide; no doubt some of the people I met last year at the Beverly Swamp / Flamborough occupation. Shuttle transport of some kind laid on. A telephone number but with instructions to send text and I don't know how to do that without a telephone so I hold my breath and wait for it to go away.
I guess this is what's known as getting down to the short hairs.
