Logging preparation operations by Greg Liles timber company were stymied by an unwavering forest lover who refused to voluntarily unlock and held his ground until nearly 10:00 pm tonight- making this the longest lasting road blockade in the Biscuit campaign to date!
As of last communication with the woods, only one arrest was made today, leaving dozens of folks in the area along with the intact canopy-rope-network-tree sit device that extends over multiple acres of the timber sale. An open call for allies to gather and support this ongoing civil disobedience campaign remains in effect! Logging is active in the Mac Guire timber sale on the Illinois River, and is imminent in a number of other sales.
