Climate Justice Forum: Ahmed Gaya of Break Free Pacific Northwest & Abby Brockway & Patrick Mazza of the Delta 5 5-11-16

The Wednesday, May 11, 2016 Climate Justice Forum radio program hosted by Wild Idaho Rising Tide gratefully shares May 9 on-air conversations with Ahmed Gaya, an organizer of the thousands-strong Break Free Pacific Northwest direct actions against two March Point oil refineries near Anacortes, Washington, on May 13 to 15, and with Abby Brockway and Patrick Mazza, two of the Delta 5 oil train blockaders in an Everett, Washington rail yard in September 2014, both with Praxis radio show producer Taylor Weech on KYRS Spokane. Ahmed, Abby, and Patrick discuss their backgrounds and reasons for climate activism and the impacts and precedents that their civil disobedience and court cases impart to fossil fuel resisters in the climate change movement.  Broadcast on progressive, volunteer, community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow every Wednesday between 1:30 and 3 pm PDT, live at 90.3 FM and online, the show also covers the Fort McMurray and Alberta tar sands wildfires, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denial of a Gateway Pacific coal export terminal permit threatening Lummi Nation treaty-protected fishing rights at Cherry Point, Washington, and continent-wide climate activism and community opposition to extreme energy projects, thanks to the generous, anonymous listener who adopted program host Helen Yost as her KRFP DJ.
