Resistance to Shipments of Proppants for Fracking

The Port of Olympia has been receiving shipments of “ceramic proppants” destined to support the hydro-fracking industry of North Dakota, where regions around the Bakken Oil Shale have been experiencing a boom rush of extraction.

Olympia Port Fracking Resistance and other groups stand in opposition to these shipments based on the grounds of many reasons, mostly relating to harmful socio-economic and environmental impacts from the fracking boom.

Stay tuned for opportunities to join the effort to oppose and resist Port complicity in the fossil fuels industry.
