98-Year-Old U.S. Peace and Environmental Activist Arrested Blockading Pipeline

Boston, June 27 (RHC)-- In the U.S. state of Massachusetts, 98-year-old activist Frances Crowe and seven others were arrested blockading construction of a Kinder Morgan gas pipeline in the Otis State Forest. 

Activists helped push Crowe to the construction site in her wheelchair, where they then held a mock funeral for fossil fuels.   

Crowe is a longtime peace and antinuclear activist.  This is her third arrest since she turned 90 years old.  When asked how many times she’d been arrested throughout her lifetime, Francis Crowe answered: "Not Enough."
