Guard Timber Sale Auction
Friday, November 8, 2002
8:00am
Mt. Hood National Forest Headquarters, 16400 Champion Way, Sandy, OR

The Forest Service continues to sell and slaughter our native forests in the name of ecosystem health. The Guard sale, located south of Estacada, proposes to cut mature and old growth forest for wood product production. This sale is not necessary for the health of the forest as the Forest Service would like you to believe. It is about the continuation of the federal timber sale program that wastes approximately $1 billion of taxpayer money annually, pollutes our drinking water, and destroys the last native forests. Join activists in a visual presentation of evidence of public land mismanagement! Carpools leave from the Daily Grind (SE 40th and Hawthorne) at 6:30 am. For information, directions to the sale, or for a wake up call, call Cascadia Forest Alliance at (503) 241-4879. www.cascadiaforestalliance.org

On the same day as we will be gathering to oppose the auctioning of our public lands on Mt. Hood National Forest - Roseburg Forest Products will be hosting the grand opening luncheon at the NAWLA Traders Market in Dallas. Along with Co-host seemac Inc., RFP is paying $20,000 to host the opening 'Celebration' for the 'Premier Event' of this globalization entity. Right now Roseburg Forest Products is logging 3 sales in Cascadia, and a delegation of Cascadia Forest Activists will be in Texas on that day to confront them. Our actions at the auction will be in solidarity with theirs as we both confront those who profit from the destruction of our public lands.

Let's see how many of you dumb smelly maggots wanna play "Rocky the Flying Squirrel" and have a lesson in Gravity 101.
The trees won't give a rats ass when you plummet 100' feet and go SPLAT.
Get a life Hippy and do something worthwhile,
You all are missing the mark.
Wake Up stupid, there is a nice life out there.
