‘We need to get this right’: State Sen. Adam Hinds visits protest cabin

SANDISFIELD – Day-long deluges muted activities for many Monday, but along the Otis State Forest pipeline easement, things were different.

Work never stops there: Tree-felling machines buzzed away a short while ago, workers buried portions of pipe awhile ago, too, and now industrialized golf carts dart back and forth over jagged, wood-strewn, and sometimes loamy, soil.

Pipeline protesters – most hailing from the Sugar Shack Alliance – stay busy there, as well.

On the easement’s fringe, they huddle and stand, scream and wave rain or shine. They have even built a cabin, inspired by famed poet and conservationist Henry David Thoreau, along the edges of private property that juts out just short of the project’s fencing.
