This is a pretty neat thing going on in the city I call home.
The protestors are blocking a Shell Oil Icebreaking vehicle that carries a required safety device that Shell has to have on site while drilling. This means Shell can’t drill in the arctic while this ship is in Portland for repairs.
This whole thing means traffic is a cluster jam and cops aren’t allowing pedestrians on the bridge at all. But I do appreciate the protesters gumption in this situation. It would seem that there isn’t a lot cops can do until the people who repelled off the bridge are ready to be done.
