kelley point park meetup location

how...
buses are taking me forever though I left at 515 am. Looks like I'll miss the meetup, maybe the first shift entry. Where are the gates that are being blocked?

7201 N Marine Dr 12.Dec.2011 07:27

is the address given

For the Port of Portland (off google maps) - Kelley Point Park is a little way north/west of this entrance, if the bus goes along Marine Dr... As I recall there's a bus stop at the parking lot on the north (right) side of Marine Drive just north/west of the gates, so when you see all the people on the right, you can get off just after that and walk back a short distance to join the picket.
[If the bus is going by way of Lombard, the port entrance is a little way past (south and east of) Kelley Point Park.]

(quote) .....They successfully diverted one train, which upon hearing of the protesters, reversed and was taken off course. A truck was also successfully stopped from crossing the tracks. But then, a front-loader operator from Millbank Material USA decided to take matters into his own hands and rolled up to the protesters in his gigantic beast of a truck. Police watched and reported on the scanner that the loader was rolling towards the protesters. They stepped aside to let him through. He lowered the bucket down, inches away from crushing the protesters' skulls and legs. Another worker cheered the driver on from the background, "Run the motherf***ers over!" The protesters remained steadfast in their resistance. They were not going to move.

Upon witnessing this, a larger group of protesters ran over to to driver and screamed at him to stop, which he did.

Police monitering the scene reported on the radio that they spoke with the operator and that he claimed that his bucket was broken. Another police officer replied that he'd seen him operating it a little earlier with no problems.

The manager of Millbank Material USA forced the operator to come out and apologize. The conversation that followed is paraphrased below.
