Beyond Extreme Energy drops banner, disrupts FERC meeting

Video from the top of FERC's awning 4 min 44 sec

On the 18th of April, two activists from Beyond Extreme Energy scaled the headquarters of FERC and dropped a banner from the awning. Others inside disrupted FERC's monthly meeting, at which gas and fracking eminent domain projects are normally rubber stamped

FERC is the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, known as the gas and pipeline industry's rubber stamp. The two activists on the roof broadcast live video over social media while cops first hauled away their ladder, then brought up a fire truck before going into a "wait and see" mode.
