Trains Carrying Extractive Materials Stopped in Solidarity with Indigenous Defenders

The following communique was anonymously submitted to IGD that claims persons unknown stopped trains near the Columbia River in solidarity with ongoing indigenous struggles across so-called North America.

The statement reads:

In beginning December we blocked rail lines on the Columbia River. We stopped the flow of coal, oil, lumber and chemicals. Extracting and producing these is murdering the Earth. This action was taken in solidarity with indigenous defenders.

Trains were stopped by attaching cables to the tracks at various points.

Trains were stopped for at least several hours and maybe more. Carrying out the action took less than an hour, about $40 materials, and little-no risk of being arrested.
