Citizens Blockade Oil Train in Everett, WA

EverettBlockadeA group of citizens took direct action this morning to block a train full of Bakken Shale oil in the Delta rail yard in Everett, Washington. It is reported that they set up a tripod of long poles over the tracks. Usually such devices are at least a couple dozen feet high. Once assembled, someone climbs it, which forces authorities to extract that person before the tripod can be disassembled and removed.
