Protesters arrested after blocking BNSF oil train

(Source: Associated Press, September 2, 2014)

The group Rising Tide Seattle erected a tripod of poles over the tracks with a woman perched on top. Others were locked to the legs of the tripod. A sign on the tripod said: "Cut Oil Trains Not Conductors," an apparent reference to a deal negotiated by BNSF and a union to allow the railroad to run some freight trains with only an engineer on board.
