Tell TransCanada to Denounce Torture of Keystone XL Blockaders! | Tell TransCanada to Denounce Torture of Keystone XL Blockaders!
Activists Benjamin Franklin and Shannon Bebe chained themselves to heavy machinery to delay construction on the toxic Keystone XL pipeline. But when a TransCanada supervisor named "John" arrived on the scene and privately huddled with police, things got ugly.
The activists say that officers immediately forced them into stress positions and used chokeholds, violent arm-twisting, pepper spray and even repeated tasering to force them to relent.
Afterwards TransCanada staff congratulated the police for a "job well done."
Sign our petition demanding TransCanada CEO Russ Girling denounce the torture of these peaceful protesters?
