It’s flabbergasting that beautiful pictures of beautiful people
and beautiful places can come from moments in time that expose destruction and tragedy.
This protest–one of many now past and certainly coming–commemorates Occupy a Pipeline, this one PVR/Chief’s Dehydrator Station in Beaumont, PA.
PVR–the same corporation who, along with Aqua America, is responsible for the evictions of 32 families from their homes at Riverdale, Jersey Shore, PA.
PVR–one more “midstream” industry among the industries upon which fracking depends. Deprive fracking of its pipelines and you deprive fracking of its reason for being: the money that comes from getting the gas to the global markets. This, I think, should be prominent among our battle cries.
Look at this remarkable sunset. Its backdrop the dehydrator station lined with protesters. I’m crouched down in the grass across Rt. 309 trying to capture the irony, the screaming sadness of this reality. The sky is painted with the color of a setting Autumn day in October. My hands are getting chilly. I am thinking about coffee. I am wondering when the next accident, the next explosion, the next spill will happen–and what the sky will look like then.
