On the 5th of November, fracking and gas export protesters returned to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for the 3ed day in a row. Again protesters set multiple sequential blockades of the driveway. During one of the driveway blockades, Federal Protective Service cops wearing Homeland Security markings arrested protesters who were attempting to comply with the 3ed warning to disperse. During another they used excessive force, tackling seated activists to break up an arm-locked blockade line. There was even an arrest of a protester sitting on a bench not engaged in civil disobediance.
