Call for a Port Transition Campaign kick off with David Rovics.

Port Militarization Resistance

By Bruce Wilkinson @bwildleaf

(This was a speech that I wrote and gave on January 10th at Traditions Cafe when David Rovics played.)

Hi everyone, thanks for being here. And let me start off by saying thanks to the indigenous women protesters who have set up a “tarpee” on the state capital at the beginning of the legislative session with a sign that reads protect our Salish Seas. They plan on being there for the duration, the next 57 days, so let’s give thanks and support to those water protectors.

Power to the Public Port of Olympia

Call for a Campaign of Transition for the Port of Olympia

Before the first #OlyStand I remember attending some Port Fracking Resistance meetings. I was not an advocate at the time of a train blockade, I was very much arguing the need to have tactics build over time and I worried about the consequences. I was wrong mostly #OlyStand was a success in a number of important ways, but I was also right because PFR never materialized an organized campaign partially because people got arrested and burned out.
