Occupy Haul Street Triple Megaload Protest 9-29-11

As activists in New York City occupied Wall Street and raged against its corporate/citizen financial inequities, Wild Idaho Rising Tide protesters lined Washington “haul street” in Moscow, Idaho, to physically oppose ExxonMobil/Imperial Oil’s transport of three huge components of an Alberta tar sands upgrading plant. These loads weighing up to 432,000 pounds and blocking two lanes of traffic degrade our rural infrastructure, compromise our civil liberties, and wreak global ecological havoc through climate change.
