In the Pacific Northwest, five activists were arrested for blockading part of the Port of Vancouver, Washington, Tuesday to prevent a shipment of pipeline intended to be used in an expansion of Canada’s Trans Mountain pipeline. Five climbers locked themselves to the dock where the shipment was to be offloaded. This is the latest action demanding that the Port of Vancouver and government officials halt the oil pipeline’s expansion, which would triple the system’s capacity.
