Woman ‘Dragged’ From West Virginia Hearing After Listing Lawmakers’ Oil And Gas Donors (video)


This is what happens when you live in a corporate dictatorship. The truth is suppressed. If only we had a press that was as courageous as this fine woman:

A woman was removed from the West Virginia House of Delegates on Friday after she used her testimony about a fossil fuel-sponsored piece of legislation to list industry donations to state lawmakers.

Lissa Lucas ventured to Charleston to voice her objections to the proposed bill, HB 4268, which would give oil and gas companies the right to drill on private land with the consent of just 75 percent of the landowners. Current law mandates energy companies obtain 100 percent approval before they can develop land, allowing a single person to hold up drilling.
