The protest today, Sept. 29, 2016 in Gainesville, well organized and executed by Jennifer Kramel drew around 50 people, animated and energetic who interacted with the passersby, with much honking, waving, chanting and singing.

The faithful stood through heat, sunshine and showers, never once faltering. The protest was over Sabal Trail pipeline, but also there were signs depicting solidarity with Standing Rock and the Dakota Access Pipeline or DAPL in North Dakota. Quite a few people who had never heard of Sabal Trail went away with a brochure and new information. The idea of the brochures was a great one and should be continued.
Your historian stopped people on the street, shoved the brochure in their hand and said “I don’t want to save your soul, I want to save your water!” It worked most of the time.
