• Protesters block coal train in Bellingham


    BELLINGHAM, Wash. - A fossil fuel resistance group blocked a coal train in Bellingham, Washington, Saturday as part of an ongoing campaign against fossil fuels. 

    Protestors raised a tripod structure in the middle of a rail bridge crossing Mud Bay south of Bellingham. Trains have been stopped since early in the afternoon. 

    Organizers of the blockade said they believe fossil fuels should be stopped in order to avoid global warming. 

    For decades, Bellingham has been in the sights of the fossil fuel industry. Activists expressed ongoing efforts to keep fossil fuel transportation out of the city.
