Just got this press release and will just add that I found Northam’s comments on WTOP yesterday, in addition to being blatantly false — insulting, beneath a physician, cheap shot, you name it. See video below the press release and judge for yourself!
TREE-SITTER RED TERRY TO GOV. NORTHAM: “HEY GOV! I AM QUITTING SMOKING! YOU QUIT THIS PIPELINE!”
Bent Mountain, VA – The Terry Family responded today to Governor Northam’s assertion that Red Terry quit smoking. “We could not be more disappointed in Governor Northam. We are fighting for our land and our water and he is trying to villainize our Red by telling her to quit smoking! If he really cared about our health, Dr. Ralph Northam would do all he can to stop this pipeline.”
Red Terry responded “Hey Gov! I am quitting smoking! You QUIT this Pipeline!”
Red Terry and her daughter, Minor, have been in two tree-sits in the foothills of Appalachia in Virginia since April 1st. They join several other tree sits in protest of the building of the Mountain Valley Pipeline, the largest diameter pipeline in Virginia history. The pipeline would cut through the Terry’s property, with Red and Minor in tree-sits on their own property.
