Police have uncovered evidence that domestic terrorist organization Antifa were behind the derailing of the Amtrak train in Washington on Monday.
The deadly crash left three people dead and at least 100 others seriously injured after the derailed carriages fell down onto a busy highway.
According to a preliminary investigation, it appears Antifa activists poured concrete on the railway tracks in protest planned to fracking in Olympia.
This since-deleted article from It’s Going Down, an Antifa website, reveals how violent activists planned on derailing freight trains near Tacoma, Washington, by pouring concrete on tracks.
On June 28th, Antifa tweeted the following statement from their official account:
“Here we endorse crimes like pouring concrete on train tracks. We also include a how-to video at bottom of article.”
“Police have raided an Antifa encampment in Olympia, Washington, following a train being sabotaged by anti-fracking activists — but the anarchists claiming credit for the act have vowed to continue until ‘every officer is down.’”
Since November 17, dozens of Antifa activists have been camping on the tracks to prevent trains from transporting fracking supplies from the Port of Olympia — however, railroad companies have stated that there were no such shipments scheduled.
On Wednesday, Union Pacific Railroad officers were met by 20 to 30 masked protesters as they cleared out the encampment and swept it for bombs. Four of the people who were camping on the tracks refused to leave and were subsequently arrested, as were eight others on suspicion of obstructing a law enforcement officer.
