Kalmiopsis Logging Blockade Update

This is the blockade bravely occupied by Laurel Sutherland, a resident of the Illinois Valley defending his home turf. It stopped operations while it lasted and brought much needed attention to the destructive "salvage" logging of the South Kalmiopsis Roadless area.

The Josephine County Sherrifs and Forest Service law enforcement sent an arborist out on the log cantilever to lower him down.

There has been some interesting media coverage following the blockade, a couple examples-

The law is the law, so it is ok for you to cut trees when ever you like but companies and people who spend millions planning on how best to harvest trees in a renewable and environmentally sensitive manner can't. Such hyprocity. Go get a job and start doing something productive. Or better yet, how about doing something selfless and join the Military and serve and protect your country.
