Cascadia Forest Alliance wishlist

Wishlist of supplies to support forest defence, and things you can to keep Cascadia green.
Porland based Cascadia Forest Alliance, in coalition with other forest defense groups, eco-organizations rural residents and local labor unions is gearing up for a wild summer of action in defense of ancient forests, with new encampments and blockades soon to be poping up all over the West Coast! CFA organizes direct action around forest protection issues, we live in trees, block roads, and employ other non-violent tactics to directly disrupt industrial de-forestation. I thought I'd take the liberty of posting a list of things people can donate to help out. A lot of this stuff is collecting dust in your garage right now:

-Get involved!!! Drive and hike food out to the woods or come live at a base camp. There's snow right now. We can provide snowshoes and skis. Help us do outreach in rural communities. Drive activists to other cities(give us a call if you're going somewhere). Let travelling activists sleep on your couch
-$$$$$$$Money, come down to the office and contribute to the broke activist fund.
-bulk food and medicinal herbs, peanut butter, outs, grains, granola, dried fruits and nuts, maple syrup, vegan chocolate, if you work at a local grocery or restuarant, hook us up!
