Cascadia Forest Defender’s Guide to PIELC
How activists can get the most out of a conference organized by lawyers
Direct Action: Meeting the Multiple Threats to Our Public Lands (Organizer: Mary Grace Brogdon) (EMU Walnut) For 20 years, Cascadia Forest Defenders have faced the threats to our natural forest ecosystems head on. From the Warner Creek Blockade to the White Castle Tree Sit, CFD has held the line against big timber and their government lap dogs. CFD has put together a multi-media presentation and panel telling the story of our threatened public forests includ- ing the O&C Lands and the Elliott State Forest, how our public officials swayed by archaic legislation and economic forces came to be tools of industry, how bad science has been used to generate and justify worse forest policy, and what we, the citizens of Cascadia and this Green Living Earth can do about it. Come get activated by your favorite activists! Show up now, while supplies last!
