Anonymous Communique Claims Rail Sabotage Along Columbia River

submitted anonymously / Earth First! Newswire

In beginning December we blocked rail lines on the Columbia River. We stopped the flow of coal, oil, lumber and chemicals. Extracting and producing these is murdering the Earth. This action was taken in solidarity with indigenous defenders.

Trains were stopped by attaching cables to the tracks at various points. Jumper cables can be split in two and used. The cables should be attached to copper wire between two sections of track. Otherwise rust must be cleaned from the bottom flanges of the tracks for a good connection.

Trains were stopped for at least several hours and maybe more. Carrying out the action took less than an hour, about $40 materials, and little-no risk of being arrested.
