This week a military ship, the USNS Brittin, was spotted loading equipment off in Tacoma. Resistance groups have mobilized, determined to stop the shipments from reaching their destinations.

This is a photoblog from the student sit-in I visited at Evergreen State College.
January in Olympia is a joyous advent when legislators return refreshed
from a long holiday season spent in their respective districts,
bringing back with them an unbridled sense of optimistic enthusiasm as
they arrive ready to do the People’s work. For a brief few weeks,
Olympia is truly a place were literally anything seems possible, and
even hardened veterans kid themselves into believing that something as
insignificant as a floor-vote on a house resolution could actually
“change the world.” Politicians talk about “bipartisanship” without
forcing back a smile, and starring “across the aisle” seems
significantly less far than last session.
