Anr Pipeline, the largest pipeline project in the U.S., is now making headlines again after a group of protesters blocked a planned pipeline to Texas, but it seems that the protest was largely about the pipeline’s name.
“The ‘Black lives matter’ shirt, which was designed by an environmental activist, has gone viral on social media, garnering tens of thousands of shares, comments, and shares since its creation this weekend,” said Anr pipeline’s spokesperson, James Stolz, in a statement.
Stolzen also explained the significance of the shirt’s name: “We are proud to call this project Anr, the initials for the group that created the design.
Anr is a direct descendant of the Spanish word Anr (which means ‘to raise up’) and means ‘fiery,'” he said.
The shirt is meant to reflect that “black lives matter” and the “energy of our movement.”
“This shirt is a nod to the Black Lives Matter movement,” Stolzer said.
“It is a way to show that black lives matter and to highlight the energy and the passion that exists in our movement.
It also reminds people that our work is important, and we have the ability to change the world.”
Anr’s protests began over the weekend when a group called the Black Panther Party (BPP) called for an emergency blockade on the Anr line, which would allow construction of the pipeline to begin.
The BPP has been involved in protests across the U
