Pollution protesters shut down Libya oil field

It's not just militia factions vying for power who are meddling with Libyan oil production. The latest shutdown was Sunday at the giant El Sharara field, where a local landowner physically closed a valve to protest pollution (a pipeline crosses his land). Love the bravery!

apparently not a one-off: the same landowner (or landowners, I'm not sure) shut the same valve down last year and managed to keep it off for 20 days because it's the place into a wasteland.

So much for that 20-day record. Wonder what deal they cut?
