Megaload Port Protest 8-22-12


Members of Friends of the Clearwater, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Northern Rockies Earth First!, and Wild Idaho Rising Tide protest the federally funded, proposed expansion of the container dock at the Port of Lewiston, Idaho, likely to accommodate tar sands equipment shipments, as U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood tours port facilities on Wednesday afternoon, August 22, with Idaho Governor Butch Otter, U.S. Senators Mike Crapo and Jim Risch, and 50 invited port customers, entrepreneurs, local elected officials, and reporters.
