Biscuit Blockaded Again!

As of 6:30 this morning, a number of forest defenders had physically blockaded the green bridge keeping loggers out of the Fiddler timber sale.
Sema, OR - I have just returned from the green bridge, the only crossing over the Illinois River, leading to the egregious Fiddler timber sale where logging activity began yesterday. As of 6:30 this morning, a number of forest defenders appear to be "locked down" to the bridge and are holding off loggers from the day's destruction. The place is swarming with law enforcement, both sheriff and forest service and it was difficult to get close. Let's keep up the pressure on all levels...act now!

Kalmiopsis EF!

11 arrests... again... around six of the arrests are of people arrested in the first blockade. There are no plans to quit. The injunction hearing is being heard at this moment.
