PMR Shuts down the Port of Olympia for 18 Hours


PMR Shuts down the Port of Olympia for 18 Hours

The Portland Military Resistance opposes Olympia's complicity in a war whose disastrous effects have been felt worldwide. They actively resist the use of the port for any action that furthers the war. Through non-violent actions they intend to stop the Port of Olympia from becoming a revolving door of military machinery furthering illegal war.

This war has taken the lives of 3,845 (and counting) US Soldiers, 20 times that wounded, over 1 million Iraqis have been slain, and has displaced many millions more. The machines being offloaded from the port are returning to be repaired and refitted for further combat. We see this as a continuation of war despite our nations' and the Iraqi People's overwhelming opposition to the war.
