Pipeline opponents strike back against anti-protest laws

This article discusses how pipeline opponents strike back against anti-protest laws in Louisana and South Dakota, and soon, Texas. OPPONENTS OF OIL and gas pipelines in three states are fighting back against new anti-protest laws aimed at suppressing fossil fuel industry dissent. Two lawsuits in Louisiana and South Dakota, and a promised suit in Texas, are the first signs of a concerted pushback against a nationwide, industry-led effort to halt the most confrontational arm of the climate movement. Since Donald Trump was inaugurated as president, at least 17 states have introduced laws that create new penalties for pipeline protesters.
