Daily protests at FERC begin-for the third time

On the 21st of May, the third week-long series of anti-fracking/anti gas export protests began at FERC. FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Agency has rubber stamped every application they have received for fracking, gas pipeline, and gas export facilities.

Nobody was arrested on May 21, in contrast to the illegal arrests and detainments of activists who attempted to attend and video the “open meeting” that FERC moved from the 21st to May 14th last week in a futile attempt to dodge public opposition to fracking and gas export

Previous protests triggered by FERC’s approval of gas export at Cove Point took place in July and November last year, and monthly FERC meetings have been disrupted almost every time this year. Yes, there is “a situation” at FERC
