On the edge of the western mountain range, protesters with Croatan Earth First! are currently occupying an industrial manufacturing facility owned by Momentive.

By halting delivery of fracking proppants protesters hope to halt fracking in North Carolina.

“We are here to send a message to the oil and gas industries: we will not stand idly by as you destroy this land, or any other, for your personal profit. Respect existence, or expect resistance,” said an Earth First! activist.

This action is ongoing. To get updates check out: http://earthfirstnews.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/breaking-hundreds-of-protesters-shut-down-oil-gas-chemical-supplier-to-protest-fracking/
