Subject: Anti-mining protest on video
A friend of mine found this video on Facebook, posted by a woman who is part of this anti-mining group. My friend is the one in pink, so she was happy to send it to the police just a few days before the court date of the thief. The video is only 6 minutes long, but the incident went on for over an hour.The language on the video is NOT work safe. Certainly erodes the credibility of what one has to say. http://www.maciverinstitute.com/2013/07/protesters-verbally-assault... this incident, the mining company hired armed guards to protect their employees and equipment. I believe my mining friends were heroic in keeping their cool. I wonder if I would have. Would you?

They're just trying to display their tolerance and enlightenment. 

I'm sorry your friend had to go through with that.  There are a lot of people that do a lot of things I don't like or agree with, but to physically and verbally assault them for just trying to do their jobs is ridiculous.

I also think it does nothing but hurt their environmental cause.  Who wants to support an organization with people like that?  I sure don't.

The number of places where I could say - "the funny part is..." Here is, in itself, funny....- they spend a large amount of time filming the environmental protection measures, thinking they are getting "good stuff" against the drilling activity, but really just showing how diligent the operation is.- The taunting of my gal in pink over the loss of her camera and phone, saying to just go to Walmart for a new one, while using similar equipment to film it themselves- one of 'their own' posted the video! She cannot understand HOW the protesters are seen in a poor light here- The question of "who is more like Ghandi- mining professionals or environmentalists?" - telling a bunch of people with high visability vests on that they are sneaking onto the land, while they were camo and face coverings - here is the funny thing for me - I (ME!?) was called a right winger for sharing the footage!- One of them, at least, might get the chance to contemplate how iron mining enhances their life style while behind bars!If anyone can PM me to tell me why I can't get my paragraphs in from,y iPad, I sure would appreciate it.

I hear that they finished the planned drill program last week.

Funny how it ripped through the mining communities and the web in general - it was posted on Facebook one afternoon, my friend say it that day and shared it (with authorities) and Facebook that evening, her friends shared it, and by noon the next day it was on YouTube with news and news blogs talking about it. The original poster didn't know how it was used until that evening when she took it off. By then, it was out there.

in Nevada, I know it has been used as the topic of safety talks on exploration projects. The reaction in Nevada is pretty strong towards the "if that happened here, someone would have been shot".

I have done exploratory drilling under the watch of armed guards in S America. It is unnerving. I never thought it would be required in the US.

Unfortunately a lot of protesters are just ignorant idiots, many of whom know very little about what it is they are actually protesting about. 

Not trying to imply that there isn't a place and time for it, but verbally assaulting people is ridiculous.

I believe you are experiencing transient episodes of inappropriate anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) secretion. ADH is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland and can be triggered by several stressors.

Not your typical review, but a review nonetheless. The first thing we triathletes need before any training can be contemplated is COFFEE! Learn how to make espresso for early morning workouts.
