January 2018 Bar Bulletin
By Cynthia Linet
In our July 2017 issue we presented the story of Cynthia Linet and five other women who, on May 17 chained themselves to an auger at the liquefied natural gas facility under construction on the Tacoma tide flats, were arrested and spent a night in jail. On December 14, a Pierce County jury acquitted Linet and one other protester whose cases went to trial.
Having failed to prevent the construction of an 8-million-gallon liquefied natural gas storage facility on contested Puyallup tribal land, six members of Tacoma Direct Action, chained themselves to a large auger at the site and stopped work for the day.
