I've just heard that the Forest Service has shown up at the road blockade
and is very angry. They are messing with the lines and one scratchy cell
phone message said they had cut a protester's hand, but details are
unavailable at this time. If you are able to drop what you are doing and
head out to the woods now or in the next hour or two, please do so.
Increasing numbers of people and media showing up may force the Forest
Service to back off for now.

From Portland:
Get on I-205 south and take the Highway 224/Estacada exit. Follow 224 all
the way to Estacada and go two miles past it. Take a left on Fall Creek
road. Take a left onto Divers road and then a right onto Squaw Mountain
Road. Follow Squaw Mountain road and it ultimately becomes forest road 4614
at the last houses you pass. Follow this another couple of miles until you
hit a large asphalt Y in the road and take the left fork (road 4615.) A
little further along is the blockade.

Contact 503-241-4879 if you plan to go and can offer rides or take gear up
