Lock and Block

The first lock and block actions were probably carried out in 1986 in St. Louis, MO, at the Southern Tier Women's Services Clinic. The most infamous particpant in these actions was James Kopp, known for constructing the bicycle lock devices that protestors used to lock themselves inside wrecked cars or large appliances. Lock and block actions became increasingly rare after prosecutions following the passage of the FACE law, (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances). These tactics were also sometimes called car rescues.
