Activist environmental group may target megaloads

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - An environmental activist group is gathering in the
Lolo National Forest next month and organizers say they may target
oversized truckloads of oil refinery equipment traveling along U.S.
Highway 12.

Earth First! organizer Greg Mack of Moscow says the gathering is set to
run July 5 through July 12 between the Idaho border and Lolo, Mont.

Mack told the Lewiston Tribune that the day after every annual rendezvous
the group performs an act of civil disobedience. He says that if the
oversized trucks, dubbed megaloads, aren't moving at that time, the group
may choose a different subject.

ExxonMobil/Imperial Oil wants to send more than 100 oversized loads on
U.S. Highway 12. The Idaho Transportation Department hasn't granted
permission for the megaloads. It's waiting on a recommendation from a
hearing officer.
