900,000-Pound Megaload Moves 40 Miles, One Arrest

KRFP Radio Free Moscow interviews Ziggy, who attempted with a Umatilla tribal grandmother to block the Omega Morgan-hauled tar sands megaload departing the Port of Umatilla on Monday, December 2, before its permitted starting time of 8 pm.  Ziggy explains the circumstances of the protest, her arrest, and five other megaload resisting actions throughout the night at Hermiston, the Highway 395 bridge over Interstate 90, an interstate off-ramp, in Pendleton, and at the final megaload parking spot.  Excerpts of a Climate Justice Forum interview with Leonard Higgins describe his and fellow arrestee Scott Schroder’s preparation, experiences, and resulting success in stopping the megload from leaving the port by personally locking to it.  Listen to both conversations between 21:23 and 7:12 of the Tuesday, December 3, 2013 KRFP Evening Report, Idaho Health Care.
