On the eighth day of the Olympia Port Militarization Resistance, the U.S.S. Pomeroy has docked to take the Stryker Brigade to Iraq.  The resistance escalates, the Port fence is shaken and nearly taken down before a riot squad enters the scene.  Port protestors are fended off by pepper spray attacks.

David Loren photographed the resistance to the militarization of the Port of Olympia on 23, 25, 29, and 30 May 2006.  The resistance lasted from 22 May till 1 June.  37 resisters were arrested.  One of Loren’s photos also illustrates Ron Jacobs, “Two, Three, Many Olympias” (MRZine 28 May 2006).
