Last Port of Pasco Megaloads 6-1-12


While traveling from Wild Idaho Rising Tide’s Tar Sands Megaloads Road Show of Tipping Point: The Age of the Oil Sands screening in Kennewick, Washington, on June 1, a solitary WIRT activist saw rainbows and thoroughly scouted the Port of Pasco for the final ExxonMobil/Imperial Oil modules. She spotted a huge “blue box” hooked to a truck, facing the dock yard gate, and guarded by a security car and two frame-type megaloads near the port cranes or on a trailer. These transports rumbled through Spokane streets and protests just a few nights later on June 3, the last of ExxonMobil’s first phase of tar sands development rampaging our region.
