protecting the forests of cascadia from globalization

let us acknowledge that the world is changing, that the current era's institutions of power and authority are not up to the challenges brought about by their own policies and actions. and let us stand together to make cascadia a place we can rely on to provide for us, so long as we don't fuck it up.
not content to passively watch the eliot state forest expand clear-cutting of ancient forests, the youth of cascadia are rising to protect these amazing, complex ecosystems, where human cultures have thrived for centuries in an area abundant in life-giving, pure water.

with so many people across the world rising up against globalized market forces - that demand trillions of tax dollars for banksters, so that nothing is leftover to care for the sick, or even to provide people with a means to meet their family's basic needs - such actions as forest occupations and lockdowns in the former united states of america are no longer isolated incidents, on some far away ridge in the mountains. they can now be seen in their rightful context - the worldwide attempt to wrest control of our lives and our planet from economic scams which are leading the human race towards obliteration.

just as the people gathered in tahrir square in cairo continue to believe in their own inherent ability to determine their own fate, we in cascadia must ask ourselves if we are well-served by the political power structure amassed on the east coast of this continent. few people in this country can honestly answer positively. knowing that our politic leaders will see our homes seized by the same banks who were given trillions of our tax dollars, and then destroy the benefits we formerly received from the government and make a huge noise about the need to go further into debt. and - again! - to the same banskters who crashed the economy through their hypno-economics.

let us acknowledge that the world is changing, that the current era's institutions of power and authority are not up to the challenges brought about by their own policies and actions. and let us stand together to make cascadia a place we can rely on to provide for us, so long as we don't fuck it up.
