A group of Catholic nuns in Columbia, Pennsylvania, are taking creative legal means to stop the construction of a natural gas pipeline on their land. After corporate attempts to seize the land, the nuns have made a legal claim that the pipeline violates their religious liberty, stating the project would infringe on their “land ethic” to protect the holy land. The nuns have occupied space along the projected site and aim to maintain a protest vigil until the project is denied.
