Directions to Cascadia Forest Defenders Action Camp

This July activists are invited to to support direct action in defense
of a beloved, ancient coastal rainforest, the Elliott State Forest.
Under the watchful mismanagement of the Oregon Department of Forestry,
timber barons are actively razing this rare, 93,000 acre cathedral of
previously untouched wilderness. It's time for friends of Cascadia to
take a stand against the dozens of clearcuts on the table for 2011-2012.

Workshops will include: climb trainings, backwoods stealth and evasion,
know your rights, and anti-oppression.

Please come self-sufficient for camping with food and water/water filtration system.
We will have some resources but not for everyone and town will be an hour away.
You can use the rideshare board at the top of the blog for carpooling.
Stragglers can meet up outside of the Eugene Growers Market,
off of 5th near the Amtrak Station, on Friday a.m.
We will have directions there and possibly open seats.
