Occupy Hanford Photos

Posted by Alex Zielinski on Mon, Apr 16, 2012 at 11:44 AM

Yesterday, Occupy Portlanders/Salemers/Eugeners/etc. met up in Richland, Washington to rally against the neighboring Hanford nuclear waste site. Originally slated as a event to help expedite the clean-up process at the site, the rally ended up presenting a more anti-nuke agenda, bringing out both fiery protesters and irritated locals. Look for a rundown on the event in this week's Mercury.

Here are a few photos from the event...
