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.”

Read more about the action: http://gptarsandsresistance.org/breaking-earth-first-activists-lock-down-inside-devon-tower-in-protest-of-tar-sands-extraction-and-plans-to-frack-the-eagle-ford-shale/

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.

What I always felt made Lucas 4:18 different was that they were 'real,' they didn't use words like 'Jesus,' 'God,' 'Prayer,' 'Bible...' like they were some sort of magic chant, fetish.... They all seemed to understand that God = Loving, Christ = Loving, Gospel = Loving, Jesus = Loving... Loving =  God; Loving = Church... and the whole deal is we are to not USE Jesus like some magic wand, but we are to BE CHRIST-LIKE, LIKE JESUS... LOVING. "Love as I have Loved...." "They will know you by how you Love." I see all that in their new picture here. Loving

Rolling Stone takes us inside the belly of the beast of the meat business - http://goo.gl/gBJzhV "You're trapped in a cage with six to eight hens, each given less than a square foot of space to roost and sleep in. The cages rise five high and run thousands long in a warehouse without windows or skylights. You see and smell nothing from the moment of your birth but the shit coming down through the open slats of the battery cages above you. It coats your feathers and becomes a second skin; by the time you're plucked from your cage for slaughter, your bones and wings breaking in the grasp of harried workers, you look less like a hen than an oil-spill duck, blackened by years of droppings."

We are in the process of redesigning our democracy to have it really work for our country. This is a never-before conversation and a new possibility in front of us.

"In Sweden, the minimum wage is $19 per hour and workers enjoy a minimum of 5 weeks paid vacation every year. In the U.S. the minimum wage is a tick above $7 per hour and workers can expect no more than 12 days of annual vacation. So guess what? IKEA has set up a factory in Virginia. Volkswagen has set up in Tennessee, and the likes of Hyundai, KIA, BMW, Honda, and Toyota have all set up in the South to take advantage of the world’s latest cheap labor source."
