Since it's Fat Tuesday, wear your favorite costume and bring a noisemaker! Let's give them a vibrant view of humanity - let's show the bureaucrats how to get down!
We'll be gathering at 6pm Monday night to make signs and banners, at the Cascadia RiSiNG! Infoshop, at the intersection of SE 16th and Clinton Streets.
Here's some of the serious background to the sale:
Thousands of acres of sensitive old-growth reserves are now imminently threatened by the Fiddler, Steed, Berry, Wafer, Hobson, Lazy, and Briggs Six logging sales. These Biscuit logging sales would degrade the well-known Fiddler Mountain/Babyfoot Lake area and the Fall Creek Trail in the Siskiyou National Forest.
The Forest Service is trying to saw through these sales before a court case on the legality of the logging can be heard by a judge on March 22nd. If logging proceeds, it could be completed before the court decides whether the logging is legal or not.
Despite restrictions on winter logging, the Forest Service is colluding with logging companies and rushing to log our old-growth reserves.
Don't let the Forest Service get away with this outrageous, unfair behavior. Please take action today to protect our old-growth forest reserves.

*Please call Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski and Siskiyou Nat'l Forest Supervisor Scott Conroy and ask them to:*
1. Ask the Forest Service NOT to log old-growth reserves in the Siskiyou until the scheduled court case can be heard (which begins on March 22nd). 2. Create a Siskiyou Wild Rivers National Conservation Area to protect and restore this special part of Oregon for future generations.
