Roadless is Priceless! A Community Action Prep for Roadless Forests

Sunday, July 30th
Action Prep 2:00 pm, Non-violence Training to follow
Medford Public Library, Adams Room
205 South Central, Medford, OR

The Bush Administration and the US Forest Service are moving forward with the first Roadless timber sale in the nation since the repeal of the Roadless Conservation Rule. The Mike's Gulch timber sale near the Wild & Scenic Illinois River in the Siskiyou National Forest has been awarded to a timber company and log trucks could be rolling in early August. It's up to us to draw the line and let the world know that "Roadless is Priceless!" Come join us as we strategize, plan, and prepare for our community's response to the the first day of logging.

That is so dissapointing to hear, I just wanted to send out support to all of the people that are pushing for non-violent direct action against such an atrocity to our envirnoment! Good luck to everyone against all of the roadless timber sales. I wish i could be there, however i am in the middle of the country right now...
