1972, Grand Coulee Dam, Washington: Bigfoot Preservationists Stage Sit In Protest
Kirk “Col. Bluefin” Roberts came to national prominence during the late 1960s for a series of protests he and his granola cult organized in Washington State. Col. Bluefin’s pet causes were all lost causes. With his 15 female followers, Col. Bluefin advocated for boll weevil reproductive rights, to get the humble leek on a US Postage stamp, and staged several sit ins for Bigfoot Preservation.
During community meetings held by General Electric to inform the public about the ongoing additions to the Coulee Dam Project, Col. Bluefin’s disruptions were all in iambic pentameter. As the final phase of the third generator were being undertaken, Bluefin and his group chained themselves to various pieces of construction equipment.
When the police came to arrest the group, Col. Bluefin led a chant “Bigfoot Rights and Peace!” The Coulee Dam Expansion Project was completed slightly ahead of schedule in 1974. Col. Bluefin became an investment banker at WaMu.
