Apr 28th, 2008
Resistance to the construction of I-69 kicked off with a weekend of resistance from April 18-22. Road opponents held an unpermitted march (more photos) on April 19 and many people calling in for the April 22 phone jam action reported receiving busy signals.
On the same day, banners were hung from freeway overpasses opposing the new highway.
A base camp has been set up in order to host resistance activities including community organizing dialogues and distribution of literature, documentation of the proposed route and any destructive acts committed by INDOT, wildlife surveying and support for direct action against the construction of the first 1.77 miles of I-69.
