Discussion afterwards.

Activists take a stand to protect an old growth forest from logging at Warner Creek in the Willamette National Forest of Oregon, blockading the logging road and repelling the State Police. Over months a community builds around the illegal blockade as it develops into the Cascadia Free State and similar actions spread across the region. Pickaxe shows the potential for grassroots direct action to achieve victory against the forces of both government and big business.


It's an awesome movie!!
