The activists, on a boat named the Greta T, were supported in their peaceful, non-violent, civil disobedience by dozens of kayaktavists hoisting “Stop Zenith” messaging and swarming the area.
Lynn Spitaleri Handlin Extinction Rebellion Supporter, and local businesswoman said, “I have written letters to editors, participated in vigils, did a healing ritual, protested at Stoel Rives, the law firm that enables Zenith, but the City continues to allow this menace in our communities. I am at my wits end, I am beyond frustrated, sad, and angry. The time to act is now, so here I am.”

The boat was detained and the activists given a ticket, which they have 45 days to respond to. As a follow up, activists from multiple environmental justice orgs will converge on City Hall at 9 am on September 6th to urge the City Council cease their dirty business dealings, and once again deny the LUCS(Land Use Compatibility Statement) to Zenith.
