"Some can say that we're a big bunch of scary hooligans, but that's not the case," says Ramsey Sprague, a Tar Sands Blockade spokesperson. They've resented, at times, the energy that the larger movement has drawn from their work without taking the same risks: getting arrested in front of the White House is, compared to a tree-sit, a tame form of protest, safe enough for eminent climate scientist and celebrities to try out. "I would have loved if James Hansen had come down to Texas and chained himself to a piece of equipment," says Sprague.
But more people than ever before are moving towards the view that direct action is needed. "We've seen an overall intensification of the fight around tar sands and also around the future of the fossil-fuel economy," says Sprague.

Ramsey Sprague, a spokesman for the Tar Sands Blockade and former campaign director of the Green Party of Texas, said TransCanada has shown over and over that it has little regard for the people whose homes are in the pipeline path. "They have just bullied people," he said.
On the other hand, he said, TransCanada can be very cooperative when it wants. On a Wood County property where Nestlé-owned Ozarka gets some of its spring water, TransCanada agreed to install extra-thick pipe, uses as little of the land as possible, and added special cleanup agreements to their contracts.
Sprague said he doesn't know whether Nestlé got better treatment because the major corporation could afford to go toe-to-toe with TransCanada in court. But he said it's clear that the pipeline company can alter its planned route when it wants to. "They moved the pipeline around the Winnsboro tree sitters, so we showed they could do that if they wanted," he said.

Sprague said Keystone opponents are "hoping that Mike Bishop standing up for his rights as a landowner will become a lightning rod for other landowners up and down the pipeline who will also stand up and say that, for all these reasons, the pipeline has to be stopped."
Bishop won't be fighting alone, Sprague said.
