On Monday, Nov. 16, inspired by recent Bill McKibben's #ExxonKnew protest, I blocked a gas pump at a Mobil station in NE Portland, Oregon for about an hour before being arrested. This video by Lindsey Grayzel follows the action and arrest and we hope will encourages others to take such action.

The best part of Ken’s video is when the police officer picks up the sign saying “Exxon/Mobil unparalleled EVIL” and displays it on the pump guard!
Yours for a fair wind,
