Roanoke woman stays ion tree to protest pipeline

Roanoke County police have filed criminal charges against a mother and daughter holed up in trees to block a natural gas pipeline from crossing their family land. But the women remained beyond the reach of the law Thursday from their perches.

Theresa Ellen Terry — a blunt-talking 61-year-old who goes by the nickname Red — was charged with trespassing, obstruction of justice and interfering with the property rights of the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

Similar charges were brought against her daughter, Theresa Minor Terry, 30, as a standoff that has captured statewide attention neared the end of its third week.

TVNL Comment:  You go girls!!!  Here are two women to be admired and supported.  Here's hoping the pipeline is stopped and that Theresa Terry and her daughter are successful in keeping their land free from polluters who care only about profit.
