Yesterday I posted some out-of-date information - my apologies! A recent pre-trial hearing led to these results, shared by Michele:
"Dear friends and followers of the Four Necessity Valve Turners:
Just a couple of updates on our trial. First, the state dropped the felony charge "aiding and abetting attempted damage to pipeline property." They determined that they did not have evidence to prove the charge. Second, due to the pandemic, our trial for the misdemeanor, aiding and abetting criminal damage of property less than $500 remains on hold. We will all re-evaluate the situation in September. Meanwhile, the fossil fuel and pipeline industries have taken numerous hits resulting in shutting down of oil fields and termination of pipeline projects. I attribute these victories to Divine intervention which has been invoked by many people from all walks of life and spiritual traditions through PRAYER AND ACTION. There is still pushback from the industries who refuse to go down easily. And so we continue to struggle for our mother earth and all our relatives on all fronts."
May we all join that struggle for our mother earth, and seek the path that prayer and action opens for us towards a future where all can thrive!
