KELSO, Wash. (AP) — Six more people have been arrested on charges stemming from last week’s union protests over the Port of Longview’s new grain terminal.
That brings to eight the number of people arrested.
The Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office says the six were booked and released for investigation of criminal trespass on railroad tracks.
Protesters with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union repeatedly blocked a train bringing grain to the terminal, and police say hundreds later stormed the terminal and damaged property.
Deputies are continuing to investigate and identify the participants.
