Solecast: Long Live the Olympia Fracking Blockade

Listen and Download Here

In this episode of the Solecast I chatted with 4 participants from the Olympia Fracking Blockade, an occupation that shut down the port of Olympia for 2 weeks in November 2018. We take a look back on the occupation in the wake of its raid.

In this interview we discuss:

  • The history of shutting down the Olympia Port from anti-war resistance to environmental actions
  • The subtle beauty of occupations and how they serve many purposes
  • The importance of blockades vs symbolic acts
  • The role of music & dance in building a culture of resistance at the blockade
  • How Freedom Of Information Act requests can inform actions
  • Perspective on the decision to not resist the eviction
  • Critical discussion of things that the people I talked to think could have been done better
  • Tons of amazing and informational anecdotes from the blockade
