Huge Crowd At Warfinger For U.S. Navy Meeting

A discussion hosted by the U.S. Navy about increased activity at the Northwest Training Range Complex drew a huge crowd tonight. The meeting held at the Warfinger in Eureka was from 5 to 7 pm. I was late due to work so I didn't expect a good parking spot. When I got there, the parking lot was full and there were another 75 or 80 cars parked along the street.


The crowd was lively and at times heckled the Navy representatives that were there to try to answer questions from concerned citizens of the north coast.

Former City Councilman Dave Meserve is featured in the grainy videos I took holding my camera over my head standing in the back with the overflowing crowd. The audio is pretty good as he asks about sonar and it's effects on whales.
I couldn't get the video to play from the embed so if it doesn't play, use the link below it.

Here is another one where a guy suggests that the crowd could detain the Navy speakers.

  1. I am unable to get the first video to play. I'll see what I can do to fix that.

  2. Dave Meserve said he played the sound of a sonar on a large P.A. to a protest crowd that had gathered at 4 pm. He said the Navy uses it at 110 decibles but they only had to get it up to 80 decibles before people were like WTF? I missed that.

  4. To me it is questionable that the Navy really needs high decibel sonar for national security. There could be a grid of devices placed in the world's oceans which could operate at levels safe to marine life. In fact, there are some systems probably in place, used to gather data for the NOAA.
    What is driving the Navy's insistence that this technology is absolutely necessary may be the fact that the oil industry wants to use it to find oil, and may be already planning to make extensive use of it. They all are part of the military-industrial complex, after all.
