  • CLEANUP: Little explanation is given about workers in hazmat suits working near a fast food shop, according to Tar Sands Blockade website.

A disturbing report from a website of a group that opposes pipelines for tar sand transport, such as the one that ruptured near Mayflower.

According to this account, Faulkner County deputies ordered them off private property near the oil spill despite their having permission from a private landowner to be on the property, unevacuated homes that lie as close to the spill site, but separated by trees, as some of the evacuated residences.

I repeat: Isn't it time for return of sovereignty in Arkansas to the people from an international oil company?
