As the sun set Monday on the Yellow Finch tree-sits near Elliston, the aerial blockade of the Mountain Valley Pipeline remained. A judge ordered the tree-sitters down last week. While an encampment of supporters had packed up and moved out by Monday’s deadline, three unidentified protesters were still in their tree stands off Yellow Finch Lane. A temporary injunction sought by Mountain Valley allowed law enforcement to remove the activists if they refused to leave. But there was no sign of action by pipeline officials or sheriff’s deputies Monday.
