Meanwhile, in Olympia, Washington, protesters have set up an ongoing encampment called Olympia Stand to blockade trains carrying fracking materials from the Port of Olympia to the Bakken oilfields in North Dakota. The materials being transported by these trains are necessary to extract North Dakota’s fracked oil, which is then slated to be transported to refineries through the contested Dakota Access pipeline. The group Olympia Stand says the blockade is in solidarity with the resistance at Standing Rock.
