A member of Extinction Rebellion, an international civil disobedience activist group, protests the Atlantic Coast Pipeline in front of the United States Supreme Court on February 24, 2020. The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is a 600-mile long natural gas pipeline proposed in 2013 by Dominion Energy and Duke Energy to run through West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. If constructed, it would disproportionately affect over half of the Native American tribes in North Carolina, including the Lumbee Tribe in Robeson County. The Supreme Court held its first hearing on February 24, 2020. On June 15, 2020 the Court ruled 7-2 in favor of the construction of the pipeline. 20 days later, Dominion Energy and Duke Energy announced the cancellation of the project due to “legal uncertainties”.
