The National Alliance for Drilling Reform wishes you Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas and plenty of clean air and safe water for all!

Gathering Line - a special pipeline that transports gas from the field to the main pipeline.

The Gathering Line is a round-up of oil & gas drilling news brought to you by National Alliance for Drilling Reform (NA4DR), a broad alliance of grassroots activists from states across the nation that are affected with drilling development.

Peacegirl read a powerful blog post this week from Don Young of Texas who viewed the recent film "Flame and Citron," a true story about a pair of heroic resistance fighters in Nazi-occupied Denmark.

Check out Peacegirl's post, Do you remember when they came? and visit her blog at Gas Wells Are Not Our Friends. Gas drillers are occupiers, and they are in charge. Do you see the parallels?
