Dozens of people worked through the night with chainsaws and other tools to transform an abandoned log deck and boulder pile into a Lincoln Log-style cabin that completely blocks the road from human passage, other than foot traffic. Beneath the fortress is a boulder-fortified basement chamber that contains two activists secured to lockdown devices that prevent their removal.
Law enforcement has now made contact with the blockade. Spirits are high and activists are confident the fortress will remain in place for a good while. The forest canopy network is sure to last even longer. Now is the time to take action in defense of this magnificent landscape. We cannot sit idly by while the last of the pristine backcountry on our public lands are sold away for corporate profit! Activists are on their way to the Free State now! Join us! Spread this message! Donate to local groups! Write letters to the editor and to the Forest Service! Have your voice heard in defense of the Wild!
