Deal could halt Keystone XL pipeline protests

Deal could halt Keystone XL pipeline protests

LONGVIEW, Texas (AP) An agreement reached in an East Texas court between attorneys for a company building a Canada-to-Gulf Coast oil pipeline and various groups protesting the project could signal a retreat on the part of demonstrators.

The Longview News-Journal reported Saturday (http:
/bit.ly/14mwHZG) that lawyers for TransCanada obtained a permanent injunction against Tar Sands Blockade, Rising Tide North America, Rising Tide Texas and others on Friday in Wood County District Court.

Under the injunction, protesters agreed to not go onto TransCanada property to protest; not to prevent access to the company's right of way easements or equipment or that of contractors; and not to threaten or harm any employees of the company or its contractors.
The injunction encompasses all TransCanada and pipeline contractor properties, personnel and easements in Texas and Oklahoma.

"We are hopeful the protesters mean what they say in this agreement," said TransCanada spokesman David Dodson.

1. That link is horribly short on details...

However, all I can say is: "WTF?!"

Why?

2. I haven't agreed to anything. Can I go start a new protest?

I don't think you can stop protesters this way, can you?
