Fifty-two people were arrested Sunday after camping out on train tracks that service oil refineries in northern Puget Sound.
They were among hundreds of activists who demonstrated against fossil fuels in Anacortes, Washington.
Elizabeth Claydon was one of them. She’s 24 and has never been arrested before.
“We were woken up a little after 5 a.m. with SWAT teams around us,” Claydon said. She said she felt compelled as a young person to push for action on climate change.
