the fucking freddie pigs were out of control at the solo timber sale auction this morning. all the forest kids were trying to block the suv of the ecorapist who had just bought the rights to murder the old growth at solo. he was driving too fast too stand in front of his killing machine but we were in front of it anyway, backing up as he drove forward. the fucking freddie pigs were in front of the truck too pushing and shoving anyone they could. they had beanbag guns and fistfuls of plastic handcuffs. i didn't hear a warning before they whipped out the pepper spray and started attacking the forest kids. people yelped and jumped back, but quite a few stayed together in front of the truck, continuing to verbally harrass it as the ecorapist tried to get out of there.
now i know what some people are going to say, that we shouldn't call the freddies pigs cuz theyre people too and all that but i ain't buying it. they're fucking pigs. they're fucking pigs for choosing that job. they're fucking pigs for helping the old growth get cut. they're fucking pigs for shoving people. they're fucking pigs for taking the side of the ecorapist lumber baron. they're fucking pigs for pepper spraying people. and they're fucking pigs if they don't quit their jobs after today.
one of the fucking freddie pigs said he didn't want to spray people but he has to if people don't comply with orders. fuck that. either he does want to spray people or he doesn't want to spray people. if he doesn't want to spray people then he needs to get another job. spraying people is part of your job when you're a fucking freddie pig. he knows that. we know that. he's not fooling anyone. he sprayed us = he's a fucking pig. end of story. if he doesn't want to be a fucking pig anymore he should quit.
"its my job" and "i was just taking orders" are what the germans said when the nazis told them to haul the jews off and gas them and make lampshades out of their skin. it's no fucking excuse. everybodys got free will, unless there's a gun to your head, and even then you've still got it- the stakes are just higher. free will means we are free to act on whats right or wrong. murdering old growth, protecting the ecorapists who cut it down and pepperspraying the kids trying to save it is just plain fucking wrong.
word to the fucking freddie pigs: if you need this job being a fucking pig because youre living a consumption-based, earthraping lifestyle depending on oil and plastics and your own this and your own that and all the fucking bells and whistles then you need to repriortize yourself. do the right fucking thing, strip back, get simple, and live well so you dont have to be a fucking freddie pig to support it all. being a fucking pig is a choice. nobody makes you be a fucking pig. if you're a fucking pig its because you put yourself there. do you have a family? are you going to tell them you peppersprayed people in the face today? are you going to tell them its your job to protect the bastards who are murdering the last bits of old growth that are left? that when a hundred people show up demanding that we stop destryoing the world that you took the side of the people doing the destroying? a famous writer oncde said the choice we all face in life is to be on the side of the victim or the executioner. today you chose to protect the executioner. that makes you a fucking pig even if you didn't attack the victims, which you did too. if you want to make peace with yourself, your world, and your god, you need to stop being a fucking freddie pig and do it now.
my eyes still itch from the pepperspray and i was 15 feet away and that was hours ago. i feel so bad for the kids who got it in the face. and i'm so proud of all the kids who kept standing up to the fucking pigs and the ecorapist suv driving lumber bastard afterwards. pepperspray won't stop the fight for justice. it shows how pathetic the fucking pigs are that they have to use it, that they dont have anything else but force to offer. we're not stopping this fight. the battle has just moved to the forest. we won't use pepperspray or other fucking pig weapons. we don't need 'em. we don't need violence. those are the weapons of the fucking weak and fucking pathetic and fucking pig oppressors. the ecorapist will wish he'd never bought the sale, we'll make it such an expensive hassle. we are strong and we wont give up.
WHEN YOU BOUGHT SOLO, YOU BOUGHT US
THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER
SEE YOU IN THE TREES
