Climate Justice Forum: Brooklyn Baptiste & Justin Ellenbecker 8-26-13

The Monday, August 26, Climate Justice Forum radio program hosted by Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) welcomes two regional activists who participated in the indigenous-led Moccasins on the Ground direct action training camp near Whitehall, Montana, on August 23 to 25.  We are honored to hear Brooklyn Baptiste tell the epic story of the four-night Nez Perce Tribe blockade on August 5 through 8 of an Alberta tar sands evaporator on Highway 12 in Idaho, as well as updates about a related federal court injunction hearing.  Justin Ellenbecker of various social and environmental justice organizations in Spokane also describes Moccasins on the Ground and local coal/shale oil export resistance and media attention, the broadened Gateway Pacific coal terminal analysis, and upcoming scoping hearings about a proposed Longview coal port.  Broadcast on progressive, volunteer, community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow every Monday between 7:30 and 9:30 pm PDT live at 92.5 FM and online, the show covers continent-wide dirty energy developments and climate activism news, thanks to the generous, anonymous listener who adopted program host Helen Yost as his KRFP DJ.
