What we are losing, photos here
Yesterday, there was blasting scheduled for 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, 4:00, and 4:30 – meaning that we could expect cops blocking the trail all day. We have no way of verifying when actual blasting took place—because no-one could be on site to do so. Thus, the preliminary injunction (with its excessively long two-hour window in which each blast may take place) is being abused to prevent the Occupiers from exercising their First Amendment rights to assemble and protest injustice at this site; which has become a focal point of the fight for renewable, local, Vermont-scale energy.
Luckily, past days have shown that there is more than one way to climb a mountain. Of course, anyone local to the Lowell Mountains area knows this—the mountain has played host to many hunters, hikers, and skiers who’ve accessed the peaks from many directions. This year is no different, and photos and videos from this season’s hunters and hikers are coming in each day. Our environmental monitoring efforts thus continue unabated as we persist in the fight for First Amendment and property rights.

Another Hiker Reports:
They are blasting 5-7 times per day. Some blasts are shaking the deer camp at the bottom of the mountain!
