On the 5th of October, the North American Gas Forum at the Hyatt in DC scheduled a field trip to Lusby, MD to visit the fracked gas export plant at Cove Point. They were delayed leaving the Hyatt for at least 45 minutes after a single protester locked down to their bus.
The solo lockdown was backed up by a camera operator who provided video coverage. Police had to agree not to arrest the locked down activist in order to avoid using extraction techniques that could have left the bus with a damaged sideview mirror. Such damage would have rendered the bus unsafe and possibly illegal to drive, cancelling the tour outright.
The activists who carried out and who backed up this lockdown were from Beyond Extreme Energy and We Are Cove Point.
