    News from the People's Republic of Washington

    The locals are protesting shipments of equipment and supplies to Iraq. Even a city councilman has gotten into the act. State Troopers had to use pepper spray. Here is a quote from one article in the local paper:

    It marked the most people arrested in one day since the demonstrations began a week ago against the military shipments leaving from the Port of Olympia's docks for Iraq. Police used pepper spray several times on the 100 or so activists and advanced into the crowd later in the evening, trying to disperse it.

    Even Olympia City Councilman TJ Johnson was shoved by state troopers trying to clear the area. In response, he stood face-to-face in front of the advancing officers until they fired several pepper-spray bombs.

    All of those arrested were taken to the Thurston County Jail on suspicion of criminal trespassing. No one was seriously injured, Thurston County sheriff’s Capt. Brad Watkins said.


    And here is a link to another article where the councilman defends his actions:
