What would you do if your town was a "revolving door" for military shipments and weapon supplies to the American military bases of Iraq and Afghanistan?

This dramatic montage is from Friday, November 9th and Saturday, November 10th in Olympia, WA. Two separate physical/human blockades were erected on Friday afternoon and the port was blocked from military access for 12-14 hours. After this, the road to the interstate highway was blocked at three or four separate locations.

Actions like this at the Port of Olympia had took place through that entire week. Tuesday the 13th was the largest day of action (which there is little footage of) when hundreds of people turned out to create physical and human blockades to throw a wrench in the operation of the military machine.

For more information about this action and its impact read the article on CounterPunch, "10 Days That Shook Olympia" by Peter Bohmer.
