BREAKING! 2 Activists locked down, 8 detained at Devon Tower in OKC.

Two activists with Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance (GPTSR) and Cross Timbers Earth First! locked themselves inside a revolving door at the Devon Tower in protest of Devon’s involvement in toxic tar sands extraction and fracking, as well as plans to increase fracking in the Eagle Ford Shale.

Simultaneously, a banner displaying a Mockingjay from the Hunger Games series was unfurled from the second story, reading: “The Odds are Never in Our Favor.”

This action coincides with two days of trial for folks in the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society who were arrested while preventing natural gas exploration on their traditional lands.
UPDATE: 8 folks scene have been detained and placed in cop cars, waiting to hear on what charges they were arrested. The whole street is blocked off and firefighters are surrounding the door that folks are locked down to. On a brighter note, check out this banner.
