forest defense

New Cascadia Summer Website!

Mission Statement:

"Cascadia Summer is a coordinated effort from concerned friends of cascadia, focused on protecting cascadia's ecosystems & bringing society into balance as a part of nature through education & creative direct action."
In light of the all out war being currently waged on our public forests and environmental protections by George W. Bush and the timber industry, forest defenders throughout the mountains of Oregon, Northern California and Southern Washington are organizing a campaign during the upcoming summer of 2003. We are issuing a call to action to all concerned individuals and organizations to request their aid during the upcoming summer months.

In the last year, eco-activists have seen a rapid increase in the level of forest destruction on public lands, the erosion of hard-fought legal protections (As inadequate as they were, they were better than nothing.), and the amount of government repression on groups fighting for social and environmental justice. Bush and his cronies are organizing to continue profiting from injustice and exploiting the Earth.
