The outdoor clothing and equipment company, Patagonia takes a HUGE stand against the Trump administration. On Monday, around 4p ET, their site went dark and they replaced their homepage with these words “The President Stole Your Land.” Then, they announced their impending lawsuit against the administration.
Why the grand gesture?
On Monday, President Trump rolled back protections on Bear Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in Utah. More than two million acres of land will be up for grabs for the mining logging and oil extraction industries.
And of course, the Twitter world stepped up to cheer Patagonia on. Check out our favorite posts:
