Meanwhile, in Tacoma, Washington, members of the Puyallup Tribe and their allies held a protest Thursday at the construction site of a liquefied natural gas facility. The protest came ahead of a July 14 court appearance for six water protectors who chained themselves to construction equipment at the site last May in a bid to halt the project, which would hold up to 8 million gallons of liquefied fracked gas near a residential neighborhood.
