As part of their ongoing struggle against Florida Power and Light (FPL), activists from Everglades Earth First! have set up an encampment at the entrance to the Barley Barber Swamp, demanding entry to ensure that ancient cypress trees are not being killed by water pumping for the adjacent Martin County Power Plant. Following a combined protest/picnic, demonstrators attempted to hike in to inspect the swamp, but were prevented from entering by police. A standoff has ensued.
