Fossil Fuel Protesters Sit-In On Train Tracks

-3132c87149ffc3c8The northwest enviro-hippies were back at it again last week. Protesters took to blocking the train tracks in Vancouver, WA, last Saturday in response to the oil train that derailed and caught fire in Oregon earlier in June.

Except the trains they were blocking contained grain and lumber, not oil.

Led by well known environmentalist protester Mia Reback, who was also one of the planners of the kayak flotilla strategy, they staged a sit-in on the tracks for several hours until police eventually arrested 20 of them. You’ll note in the videos that most of those arrested are senior citizens. The protest organizers intentionally plan that out for two reasons; 1) It creates by public sympathy by having pictures go out in the media of the big bad police officer handcuffing a little old lady. 2) The older protesters have nothing to lose. They’re retired. They don’t have to worry about potential employers seeing their mugshot or reading about their arrest history. The younger protesters are more “vulnerable” in that regard.
