Nez Perce and supporters maintained a two and one-half hour rolling roadblock of the tarsands  megaload on Tuesday night and during the predawn of Wednesday, during the second night of human blockades at the Clearwater River in Idaho on sovereign Nez Perce Nation.

Blockaders said the Nez Perce Tribe maintained a 2.5 hour rolling roadblock, despite efforts of 40-50 police officers and the richest corporations in the world. 

About 100 Nez Perce slowed movement of the mega-monster to a crawl.

Brett Haverstick, who provided these photos, said, "The huge police presence last night, made up state, county and tribal officers, converge on 100-or so members of the Nez Perce Tribe---this was the beginning of the 2.5 rolling roadblock, in which men, women and children continue to proudly defend their rights, their culture, and their love of place."
