From WMRA’s coverage of the event which took place on Monday, June 6, 2016:

Activists who helped bring an end to the Keystone XL pipeline from crossing Nebraska have come to Virginia to help local landowners do the same with Dominion’s Atlantic Coast pipeline. The alliance is staging six protests across Virginia and West Virginia, planting sacred corn along the route of the proposed pipeline. WMRA’s Jessie Knadler attended one event in Stuarts Draft to learn more about these “seeds of resistance.”
