Two Arrested in Idaho for Attempting to Block Passage of Tar Sands Equipment


Two people were arrested in Moscow, Idaho, late Sunday night after they attempted to stop the passage of megaload trucks carrying oil company equipment to the Canadian tar sands.  Activists said the two were arrested after they linked arms and sat down in the street in an attempt to block the trucks.  Sunday’s action was one of dozens spurred by the passage through Moscow of shipments carrying oil-related equipment to the tar sands.
