In an act of nonviolent direct action, a Gulf Coast mother Cherri Foytlin was arrested after chaining herself to a gate to the multinational energy corporation TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipe yard. She was brought before a judge hours after and charged with a Class A Misdemeanor for “criminal trespass of a habitation, shelter, superfund, or infrastructure.” Her arrest brought the number of arrests during Tar Sands Blockade actions in Texas to thirty-two.
