Burlington Free Press - "Fossil-fuel Protests Span Champlain Valley"
Plattsburgh Press Republican - "Keep it in the Ground" fairly extensive article focused on the oil trains action -

New England Cable News "Activists Halt Construction, Block Truck, Line Railroad Track, in Fossil Fuel Protests"
WPTZ- "9 Arrested in Separate Protests Against Transporting Crude Oil"

WCAX - "4 Protesters Arrested at VT Gas Pipeline Site" lots of focus on the gas truck action and they really picked up on the "day of action" theme.
VTDigger - "Activist Groups Protest Transport of Fracked Gas"

Please pass this on to any networks who might be inspired by this coordinated and escalated day of resistance!
