IMPORTANT WARNING FOR ALL
DO NOT APPROACH SURVEYORS.
VIDEOTAPE ANY AND ALL INTERACTIONS.
CONSIDER THE Right of Way TO BE UNSAFE TERRITORY.
- Some town police departments are acting on Kinder Morgan's cries of eco-terrorism and threats, regardless of peaceful action.
- Police are being advised by Kinder Morgan and may receive training from the FBI on handling what they consider to be unruly protesters.
- NH Spirit's Board is discussing fund raisers to prepare for legal counsel assistance for those who are arrested under peaceful, unarmed resistance circumstances. We encourage others to do fund raisers for NH Spirit. We need to protect ourselves and each other.
- Please discourage "shadowing" surveyors. This has caused an increased armed guard/police presence along the ROW and interactions are increasing. If you do arrange shadowing, be prepared to assist those you have sent into battle zones when and if they run into trouble.
- Many of the ROW entries are now gated. Consider this fair warning that you should proceed with caution, at your own risk, and follow any and all posted information.
- Police seem to be siding with surveyors and may not be clear on where boundaries are and rely on information from Kinder Morgan and contractors.
- We have already had one comrade fall victim to arrest on serious, trumped up charges of trespassing in an attempt to keep property from being trespassed upon. Try to avoid becoming the next KinderVictim.
DO contact police when you witness trespassers.
DO continue large scale public protests.
DO act verbally and physically in a peaceful manner.
DO use social media to address our elected officials directly.
DO remember that climate change must be addressed by our elected officials. Call them on their inaction and support the comments of others.
BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE LAW. Kinder Morgan claims to be victimized. Protect yourself and others.
- Do not pursue or call after those are not interested in information or disagree.
Please be kind and use a soft approach. It will also serve us well when Kinder Morgan claims that we are the bullies, not them. :)
- Do wish them a nice day!
THANK YOU so much for the many things you all do!
