Industry Intimidates Peaceful Protestors

While peacefully maintaining their blockade, Jackson was lightly hit by a soil truck.  Despite his care to make sure that they could in fact see him, the truck continued to move forward and push against him, in a blatant effort to frighten the protesters with the threat of physical harm.  Though the police had allegedly already been called by V&M, they were not yet on the scene.  Photos and video has been recorded of the aggressive action against an unarmed young man, and will be posted here shortly.

Since then, seven protesters have been arrested, they will be arraigned tomorrow morning.  We will update with more details when we get them.
