VICTORY: MI-CATS 3 freed
Vicci Hamlin, Lisa Leggio and Barbara Carter – the MI-CATS 3 – locked themselves to machinery to block the construction of Enbridge’s line $6B tar sands pipeline. The pipeline is the same one that, in 2010, spilled more than a million gallons of tar sands, fouling a huge section of the Kalamazoo River.
After delivering over 60,000 other signatures to the judge, a month-long campaign supported by CREDO to build awareness and public pressure calling for leniency, Vicci, Lisa and Barbara were released from jail with 13 months probation and no prison time.
