At least 12 arrested as protests move to downtown, I-5 entrance

OLYMPIA -- At least 12 people have been arrested today as protests of military-cargo shipments from the Port of Olympia moved to downtown and the Plum Street entrance to Interstate 5.

About 12:15 p.m., Olympia police arrested at least three people at Fourth Avenue and Plum Street. About 12:20 p.m., protesters gathered at the I-5 entrance in a failed attempt to block convoys. Police arrested at least nine people there.

Protesters on foot blocked traffic at Fourth and Plum about noon by jumping in front of 18-wheelers towing cargo containers containing military equipment bound for Fort Lewis. But Olympia police in riot gear moved in quickly,

spraying pepper spray in the faces of the protesters, pushing them with their batons and dragging them away from the road.

About 10 protesters partially blocked Plum Street at the entrance to Interstate 5 by linking arms through PVC pipes and sitting in the road. Police shot them with pepper spray guns and, when they didn't move, cut the PVC pipes, handcuffed them and dragged them to a police van.

Earlier in the day, Olympia police officers dressed in riot gear used pepper spray and physically removed the 20 or so Olympia Port Militarization Resistance demonstrators who were blocking the entrance to the port about 9:45 a.m.

A larger number of protesters stood by and shouted at the police, decrying what they felt were excessive tactics. A smaller group that included some of the truck drivers who were waiting to move military equipment to Fort Lewis voiced quiet support for the police actions.

By about 10:20 a.m., a large number of trucks had entered the port and about 20 officers lined the road at Franklin and Market streets, making sure the road was clear of protesters.

About 10:30 a.m., several protesters -- including one young woman screaming in pain -- were being treated by paramedics after being pepper-sprayed by police. The line of protesters at the port’s gates, some of whom wore goggles and other protective gear, withstood several sprays and were physically removed by officers who picked them up and threw them away from the road they had blocked.

Saturday’s actions by police come one day after protesters were able to halt to two trucks from removing military equipment that had been unloaded from Iraq.

All week, OlyPMR has been protesting the use of the port by the USNS Brittin, which landed at the port Monday to unload equipment that was used in Iraq by the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team).

On Friday, protesters, including several small children, were able to keep two trucks, including one towing a Stryker vehicle, from leaving the port. Olympia police said the department did not have enough officers available to remove the protesters Friday, and that they were not prepared to physically remove children.

Olympia Port Commission President Paul Telford said Friday night that he understood police did not have the resources to remove the protesters that day but added he was “a little disappointed that we didn’t get some police support.”

Early this morning, protesters were blocking the main entrance to the port, and overnight a barricade had been built at another road providing access to the port on Market and Marine Drive. Protesters said they were there all night.

The barricade, which included the axle of a truck with four wheels attached and plastic garbage cans, was cleared by what appeared to be port workers using a bulldozer about 8:15 a.m. today. Police also cleared protesters from the barricade using pepper spray.

Before today's action by police, truck drivers who were waiting to do their jobs said they didn’t feel police were doing theirs. Overnight, truck driver Mike Cutberth said protesters stole equipment from his truck that he had used to secure cargo containers.

“The police response (stinks),” Cutberth said of Saturday’s incation by police.

“We’re a tax-producing business,” said truck driver Tory Liljeblad. “Why don’t we get protection?”

Nathan Forrest added that “I can’t make a living” with the protesters blocking port access.

“We’re truck drivers; we can’t get in and work,” Mike Smith said.

After the trucks rolled into the port this morning, it appeared that OlyPMR’s resistance would continue; police scanners were reporting various actions in the area of the port and on Fourth Avenue after 11 a.m.

Billy: Hey Joey, what did you do on Friday?

Joey:  Oh, just the usual stuff.  My mom took me and my sister down to the Port and put us in the road to block trucks, and we all screamed and yelled and threw stuff at the police.  And when we wouldn't move, they pepper-sprayed us all and it made me sick for the rest of the day.  They dragged my mom off to jail while she was kicking and screaming  It was fun!

I don’t feel sorry in the least for the girl in pain from pepper spray or any of these protesters. I think if children were there then child services should have come in asap. If you want to protest then be ready for pepper spray & arrest. IMHO you never take a child to a protest.

Anyone that purposely takes a child to a protest that has physical action planned should have child services respond, IMHO.

I’ve taken my kids to peaceful demonstrations to support the troops, where we held signs and flags as people drove by in cars. If there was any possibility of any counter-protesters or confrontation present, that would have been irresponsible. Kids have no business in that.

You're absolutely right of course.  The police were being so careful as a result of the presence of children, their perceived inaction upset some people.  I couldn't be helped when protesters bring kids into a potentially hazardous situation.

Those kids should be placed in permanent foster care, IMO.  That's utterly reckless for parents to take their kids into a situation like that.

I am careful about where I take & took my older children. I took 8 yr old Sassy to a wingfest this year. It was hot & frankly a mistake to take her. Too much beer was drank by the people around us. I try not to place a child where there is a possibility of trouble. Those are not thinking parents & if anything I think they used the children & placed them in a harmful way. The cops should have done more & I feel for the truckers. Time is money for those guys.

Agreed, and the kids should be introduced to a new mom and dad.

I’ve taken my kids to peaceful demonstrations to support the troops, where we held signs and flags as people drove by in cars. If there was any possibility of any counter-protesters or confrontation present, that would have been irresponsible. Kids have no business in that

I think that in most cases, Troop-support actions are probably among the safest places you could possibly bring your kids....and an educational one.  They'll have an opportunity to meet military people and interact with them in a positive way.

And if any of the moonbats start getting out of line, you'll quickly have about fifty highly-focused pro_Troops people between them and your kids   :-)

I’ve been thinking of more humane method of liberal crowd dispersal than pepper spray. For some reason, machetes come to mind.

It would be like a sports event....when the police drag away a protester, a point for the home team has been scored and the crowd goes wild   :-)

I wonder if any pro-Troops people have put footage of that up on YouTube yet?  It would be the sort of thing that you'd want to bookmark and watch again and again  :-)

You won't get any arguments from me  :-)

Although this approach is far more lenient than what I would prefer, we've been having an interesting discussion in the FR Washington Forum  on the use of water cannons on rioters.

I understand that they are quite effective, and make the rioter quite disinterested in rioting.

Pepper spray? Tazers? The heck with that!

I’m thinking more along the lines of a ‘hickory shampoo’, combined with some good-and-mean police K-9 units.

It’s times like this where I wonder if The Evergreen State College should be allowed to exist...

Child abuse and taking the idea from terrorists who use children as a shield.

Put those children in foster care.

It certainly looks like “endangering the life of a child” to me! The child welfare dept. needs to do a complete investigation of these parents to see if they are fit to raise a child. I suspect they are not!

Ain't no problem removing children. Mrs. Pablo64 could show them exactly how you educate children in how to obey when ordered to move.

The following is being circulated by an OLYMPIA CITY COUNCIL MEMBER (I wish I was kidding about that...)

-----------

Community Forum on Police Response to Port Demonstrations

Tonight (Sunday, November 11) Traditions Cafe

Yesterday, citizens of this community were brutally victimized by the Olympia Police for taking non-violent direct action to oppose the use of our public port by the military.

Others, including myself, were pepper sprayed and shoved with batons for doing nothing more than being there to witness and document the events, and for trying to help the injured.

The war abroad has now become the war at home. And it’s a war being waged against your friends and neighbors.

Regardless about how you feel about the use of our port by the military, it is important to understand that what is happening to your friends and neighbors who demonstrate against it is a threat to the civil rights and liberty of everyone.

There will be an important community forum tonight at 6:30pm at Traditions to document and discuss what happened. It is very important that the people of this community turn out to bear witness to the stories of brutality, and to help the victims process their trauma.

Please, please, please. Clear your schedule of other obligations and join us at Traditions tonight at 6:30 pm.

Contact me if you have questions, and please share this widely.

Agreed.  They are doing essential work in the War On Terror.  Without them, materiel wouldn't be able to move and the Iraqi people would still be forced to watch their loved ones fed through plastic shredding machines as Saddam's henchmen snicker and chortle.

Saturday’s actions by police come one day after protesters were able to halt to two trucks from removing military equipment that had been unloaded from Iraq.
All week, OlyPMR has been protesting the use of the port by the USNS Brittin, which landed at the port Monday to unload equipment that was used in Iraq by the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team).

If these are the folks who supposedly don't like the war, shouldn't they be HAPPY when equipment and soldiers come HOME from it?

Buncha goobers!
