The article reports on the protest of union members and energy workers against the move of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to open the Wyoming Range of the Bridger-Teton National Forest for oil and gas drilling. The BLM had been auctioning parcels for interested business developers to set-up oil and gas development projects. The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations cited that the forest had served as an environmental recreation area and home of wildlife animals ranging from mule deer, elks and moose to grizzly bears. Protesters were gathering signatures from fellow workers for the appeal of BLM's decision.
