about the blockade:

Olympia Stand, a climate justice coalition, has constructed a blockade of an oil fracking train departing from the Port. As we write, the blockade has entered its fifth day and on the 1-year anniversary of another anti-fracking blockade which lasted one week.

During last year’s blockade – inspired by the Water Protectors at Standing Rock – hundreds of people collaborated to construct a makeshift camp on the train tracks. They were evicted on the 7th day through a joint and overwhelming force of Washington State Patrol, Olympia Police Department, Thurston County Sherrif’s Department and Union Pacific Police Department. During the eviction, 12 demonstrators were arrested and others were struck with less-lethal weapons.
