Show Your Love For The Delta 5



On September 2, 2014, five concerned citizens decided to take a stand and defend their community, families and loved ones from the climate chaos in general and bomb trains specifically. Mike LaPointe, Patrick Mazza, Jackie Minchew, Liz Spoerri and Abby Brockway, known as the Delta 5, blocked a "bomb train" shipment of volatile bakken crude from departing a Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) rail yard in Everett, Washington, just north of Seattle.

When it was all said and done, they successfully blocked the bomb train that would have traversed their communities and many others, putting them at risk of a fiery disaster and fueling climate change for sure, for eight hours. And, while eight hours may not seem that long, their act of defiance is timeless as a symbol for civil disobedience against the dig, dump, burn economy that threatens us all.

The Delta 5 are currently on trial facing charges of trespassing and blocking a train -- if found guilty, they could face hefty fines as well as jail time. No matter the outcome of the trial, I think we should show our love, support and appreciation for these knights and defenders of the climate. Sign here to show your love and sign our thank you card to the Delta 5.
