Environmental Activists Take to Local Protests for Global Results, by John Schwartz. This article mentions BXE, although not by name:

Activists regularly protest at the headquarters of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Washington, but there have also been sizable protests in places like St. Paul and across the Northeast.

The word ‘networks’ in the sixth paragraph has a hyperlink to BXE’s website. The article also quotes Greg Yost of BXE and Patrick Robbins with BXE ally Sane Energy Project. Activists quoted throughout do a commendable job knocking away the “bridge fuel” argument.
