After today’s Amtrak derail, it has come to the attention of many that Antifa had made similar threats to what we saw in April.
Right now the cause of the Amtrak derailment is still under investigation.
However, it would be grossly irresponsible to not investigate an #Antifa allied group, in the same region, that previously claimed responsibility for obstructing train tracks with concrete. pic.twitter.com/4wHoDIRvR8

Now, they have since taken down the post but Antifa must still be investigated. PJ Media gave us a portion of what they said.
Early in the morning of April 20th we poured concrete on the train tracks that lead out of the Port of Olympia to block any trains from using the tracks. We took precautions to notify BNSF (the train company) – we called them and we used wires to send a signal that the tracks were blocked. We did this not to avoid damaging a train, nothing would bring bigger grins to our faces, but to avoid the risk of injuring railway workers.
This action was done to disrupt the movement of trains carrying proppants used in natural gas fracturing. These train tracks are part of a system of pipelines, fracking wells, mines, clearcuts, control centers, fiberoptics, dams, highways and factories that cover the planet and are physical manifestations of a process that is destroying the ecosystems, cultures, and inhabitants everywhere. Behind this network of infrastructure there are politicians, CEOs and bureaucrats who have private security, cops, prison guards, non-profit directors, PR consultants and the legacy of 500 years of colonization to back them up. We oppose all of these manifestations, infrastructural, personal and ideological. We blocked the train tracks because we want to blockade the entire web of domination that is slowly killing us.
