In early September 2014, five people erected a 20 foot tripod in front of an oil train in an Everett rail yard blocking it for almost nine hours.
Over a year later the Delta 5 are going to trial to expose the danger and corruption of fossil fuel transport in our state. These unlikely activists: a mother, small business owners, a teacher, and a writer; shone a giant spotlight on the dangers of oil-by-rail turning it into the biggest campaign in our state.
Now it's time for us to stand with the Delta 5. Their trial starts on January 11th in Lynwood, WA and we need to show the moral force of the community is behind them. Will you join us?
We'll be packing the courtroom all 5 days of the trial and members of the Climate Disobedience Center, including Tim DeChristopher, will be in town doing events all week. Visit delta5trial.org for more information.
You can support the Delta 5 in many ways during the trial.
Offer carpools, donate/cook food, write an op-ed, create banners, or donate to their campaign fund.
This money will go to their legal fees and solidarity actions. Learn more here: http://risingtideseattle.org/actions/#oil
