Zombies Stop MVP Construction at Montgomery County Site

Appalachians Against Pipelines organized an inventive action today, blocking a Mountain Valley Pipeline entrance.

Earlier today, about a dozen ghoulish pipeline fighters stopped work at a Mountain Valley Pipeline construction site on Mt Tabor Rd near Blacksburg, VA. Their presence halted multiple construction and worker vehicles, including a truck carrying multiple lengths of the 42-inch diameter pipe.

One of the “zombies” on site stated: “We are the living dead. Our birthright of capitalism, global warming, and never-ending extraction is a death sentence. This fact must be realized. These forces must be stopped.”

Pipeline fighters held signs reading “KILL THE MVP” and “NO SCARY PIPELINES.” They chanted “We are dying, We are bleeding // Poisoned water, Halted breathing // Don’t make us the living dead, Kill the MVP instead”

Law enforcement arrived on site after a few minutes. No arrests were made.
