At the capital city Olympia... Protesters are busy in a futile attempt to stop trains from carrying oil (fracked oil especially/specifically) through their city. Sheesh, not again! Most of these folks drive cars fueled by gasoline. How else do they travel to the capital to protest, or attend city council meetings? Talk about chopping your nose off...

"Sheesh not again!" is right. All their protesting hasn't changed a damn thing.

Looks like the railroad scores a win... And 'protesters' are chased off. Again.

According to U.S. News and World Report:

Railroad Police Officers Break up Anti-Fracking Protest Camp

Authorities in the Washington state capital of Olympia say they confronted dozens of anti-fracking protesters who had blocked the railroad tracks for more than week.

Railroad Police Officers Break up Anti-Fracking Protest Camp
 

?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmedia.beam.usnews.com% OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) Authorities in the Washington state capital of Olympia say they confronted dozens of anti-fracking protesters who had blocked the railroad tracks for more than week.

Olympia police tweeted early Wednesday, warning people to stay away from the area near downtown where Union Pacific Railroad officers confronted 20 to 30 masked protesters.

The crowd dispersed and officials are sweeping the encampments for bombs to clean up the site.

The protesters wanted to block trains carrying ceramic proppants, or fracking sand, and related materials from the Port of Olympia, though railroad companies said there were no shipments scheduled.

The port handles cargo used in the hydraulic fracking extraction process, which extracts oil and gas A similar protest last year ended with a dozen people arrested by officers in riot gear.
