Youth pastor arrested in Keystone pipeline protest in Oklahoma
Youth pastor Stefan Warner and seven others were arrested Monday after protesting against the Keystone XL pipeline.
“I figure folks have to take action to stop our beautiful Oklahoma from being marred by a foreign corporation, and stand up to fight big corporations who think that poisoning people and stealing land is acceptable so long as they make a profit,” Warner added.
Warner is the second person to try to halt the pipeline in Oklahoma by impeding construction.
Retired teacher Elisabeth Leja, of Norman, was arrested last week between Paden and Boley after locking herself to a track hoe. She faces a misdemeanor trespassing charge in Okfuskee County.
