Anarchists Bragged in April about Sabotaging Railroad Tracks to Block Fracking

ISIS shouldn’t be the only terrorist group under suspicion for the Amtrak derailment in Washington this morning.

The anarchist group “It’s Going Down” last April bragged online about sabotaging railroad tracks in the Pacific Northwest to block fracking equipment from getting to its destination. The group has since deleted the post, possibly in reaction to today’s Amtrak disaster.

It’s Going Down

4/20/17

Puget Sound Anarchists

Early in the morning of April 20th we poured concrete on the train tracks that lead out of the Port of Olympia to block any trains from using the tracks. We took precautions to notify BNSF (the train company) – we called them and we used wires to send a signal that the tracks were blocked. We did this not to avoid damaging a train, nothing would bring bigger grins to our faces, but to avoid the risk of injuring railway workers.

The post continued:

This action was done to disrupt the movement of trains carrying proppants used in natural gas fracturing. These train tracks are part of a system of pipelines, fracking wells, mines, clearcuts, control centers, fiberoptics, dams, highways and factories that cover the planet and are physical manifestations of a process that is destroying the ecosystems, cultures, and inhabitants everywhere. Behind this network of infrastructure there are politicians, CEOs and bureaucrats who have private security, cops, prison guards, non-profit directors, PR consultants and the legacy of 500 years of colonization to back them up. We oppose all of these manifestations, infrastructural, personal and ideological. We blocked the train tracks because we want to blockade the entire web of domination that is slowly killing us.

Anti-fracking activists and anarchists have been blocking rail tracks in Olympia, Washington, for the past month.

On Nov. 30, an anonymous anarchist wrote about rail sabotage on the Puget Sound Anarchist website.

A few days ago, inspired by the  Olympia train Blockade, we used copper wire to signal a blockage and disrupt rail traffic near Medford Oregon. Railways are easily accessible and everywhere. Sabotage is fun and easy.

—oo—

Should this prove to be true, none of us should be surprised.  The left is devoid of decency and logic.  Sadly they are within the perimeter and must be rooted out.

    Just saw on the snooze the train was going 80 on a 30 mph stretch of the track. Watch for snooze coverage to stop if it even looks like a leftist group had anything to do with this.

    If this does end up being a sabatoge, woe to those involved. The entire movement and those behind it should be hunted down and made to pay. I also place blame on cities and states that are determined to defy reasonable national security measures just to rant and be defiant. Those officials need to be immediately removed from office and charged with accessory or more. Clyde it may have been going 80 BUT according to the accounts the ” train was making the first-ever run along a faster new route .” You know they would have been extremely cautious and safety conscious.

    Isn’t it the height of hypocrisy for Antifa to use computers, internet infrastructure & top technology to urge/perform sabotage on infrastructure so as to destroy ‘planet-harming’ technology?

    For anyone interested, there is a poignant story on wnd.com about a young Eagle Scout & his girlfriend who ran into the crashed train to help people before 1st responders arrived. Offered practical help, prayers, & comfort to the injured.

    There was a twitter comment that the power outage in Atlanta was caused by Pacific NW hackers, so the ATL hackers retaliated by hacking the train controls. https://mobile.twitter.com/qntmpkts/status/942987180217176064/photo/1

      If true, what a despicable way to “get even”. People were delayed in Atlanta; big effin deal. People were hurt if not killed in Seattle. These little, self-righteous snots need to be rounded up and air-dropped into North Korea.
