Favoriting November 3, 2022: Interviews with two activists involved with the disruption and occupation of the Valero oil terminal

On today's No One Is Illegal Radio, part of CKUT's Off The Hour, we feature an interview, in French, with two activists involved with the disruption and occupation of the Valero oil terminal of the Enbridge 9B pipeline in Montreal-Est, an action that took place on October 19, 2022.

The protesters, part of an affinity group called the Collectif Antigone, blocked the entry to the terminal with a shipping container, while various protesters locked down inside. Six protesters climbed onto the towers used to fill the tanker ships with oil from the pipeline, and effectively prevented the delivery of upwards of 300,000 barrels of oil that day.

On today's show, we speak with Emily Zajko and Jacob Pirro, who were both involved in the action. They describe in detail how the action played out, from the initial occupation, to eventual police arrests. They also describe the reasons for opposing the Enbridge 9B terminal, but also the broader context of anti-capitalist and anti-colonial opposition to extractivism.
