Women Take Back the Green Bridge
About 100 people gathered on the corner of Highway 199 and Eight Dollar Road in the Illinois Valley this morning to protest logging at the Biscuit timber sales. The crowd walked a few miles to the closure line and were not met by any law enforcement. The closure blocks public access to the Fiddler timber sale and the famed Babyfoot Lake area.

A group of women crossed the closure line and walked 3 illegal miles of public land to the Green Bridge. Five women locked arms and sat down on the bridge, blocking logging trucks that were carting away Fiddler Mountain Old-Growth. All five were arrested and taken to Josephine County Jail.

MONDAY, MAY 16 - Women of all ages & demographics: Been wanting to step up? Now's the time!!

With dignity and honor, twenty-two women were arrested last March 14, mostly for sitting down on the 'Green Bridge' over the Wild & Scenic Illinois River: blocking loggersp access to Fiddler Mountain. We captured Americaps imagination for a moment, but alas, logging still persists!! So gals, dust it off and come on down for some serious forest funäand resist the destruction to our last public wild places by the Bush Forest Service. This time, the women will wear green.

2nd Biscuit Defender passes Two-Week Mark in Jail
Amber pictured with a newly-born spring Goat Amber Birmingham was arrested April 18th after unlocking from a 1200 lb. cement-filled barrel blocking the road to logging on the Biscuit timber sale at Fiddler Mountain. She stayed locked in while the Forest Service and County Deputies used a small dolly to precariously move the barrel to the side of the road. This was her second arrest, after she participated in the Women's Blockade of the Green Bridge on March 14th, and the court refuses to release her without bail, which is she refuses to pay. She follows in the footsteps of 74-year-old Joan Norman who has never paid bail in her life, and spent 18 pre-trial days in jail for her second arrest in March.

July 4-11: National Earth First! Rendezvous @ Mt. Hood! Eugene, Pdx & Olympia this week!!
The Earth First! Round River Rendezvous (RRR) is the annual week-long wilderness gathering of hundreds of folks from around the world dedicated to taking action to protect the Earth. The gathering is named for Aldo Leopold?s Round River; metaphor expressing the ecological interdependence of living systems. The RRR is coordinated by a local volunteer committee and includes workshops, campaign discussions, campfire music and a rally with performers and speakers. Perhaps the most important part of the RRR is the informal networking that goes on. At the end of each RRR, attendees can choose to participate in fun-filled actions supporting local issues.

Right now, the Earth First! Round River Rendezvous Roadshow is trucking up and down spreading the love of defending wilderness. 2005 marks 100 years of the US Forest Service mismanaging our public lands, but it also marks 25 years of Earth First!(EF!) resisting their destruction. To celebrate this Anniversary of Resistance, we'll be showing and EF! History slideshow that will bring you from the first action, through the yesteryears and up to present day. This year is also the 100th years Anniversary of the Industrial Worker's of the World(IWW), who have been at the forefront of the radical labor movement. Their history and how their movement affected the environment will also be covered throughout the roadshow.
