Activists shutdown Tar Sands Pipeline Drilling Rig

On Sunday January 17th, Coast Salish Territories, 7 activists boarded a Kinder Morgan rig, drilling test holes for a proposed oil terminal for their Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline.

The activists shutdown drilling work and  were later arrested by heavily armed police.

Meanwhile two women locked themselves to the doors of the National Energy Board in Vancouver, in solidarity with the barge  occupation and in opposition to Kinder Morgan Pipeline.
