Climate Justice Forum: Delta 5 Oil Train Blockader Mike Lapointe 2-3-16


The Wednesday, February 3, 2016 Climate Justice Forum radio program hosted by Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) gratefully welcomes Delta 5 oil-by-rail blockader and jury trial defendant Mike Lapointe, who locked down to a tripod in an Everett, Washington rail yard all day on September 2, 2014.  Mike will talk about the motivations and logistics of his heroic direct action, the testimony, verdict, and aftermath of his precedent-setting, week-long, court hearing, and how grassroots, frontline, rail corridor residents can emulate his protests of climate-wrecking, life-threatening, fossil fuel transportation in the Northwest.  Broadcast on progressive, volunteer, community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow every Wednesday between 1:30 and 3 pm PST, live at 90.3 FM and online, the show covers continent-wide climate activism and community resistance to extreme energy projects, thanks to the generous, anonymous listener who adopted program host Helen Yost as her KRFP DJ.
