Come out and Stand Up for the Ancient Redwoods!

EMERGENCY RALLY !! Tuesday Dec. 6 at noon

PLEASE COME DURING THE LUNCH HOUR AND SHOW THAT WE THE PEOPLE OPPOSE LOGGING OF ANCIENT REDWOODS!


On Veteren's day, Maxxam/Pacific Lumber (PL) started logging in the Nanning Creek Grove in Humboldt County, and have now moved into the ANCIENT REDWOOD GROVE that includes trees over 15 feet in diameter and up to 2000 years old.


Earth First! and Humboldt Forest Defense activists have erected tree-sits in the branches of some of the massive trees, and have held vigils at the logging road gate outside Scotia, including a lock-down action last Monday when four people were arrested


JOIN THE GROWING RESISTANCE TO THE DESTRUCTION OF PRECIOUS OLD GROWTH FOREST HABITAT!


Nanning Creek Grove is east of the company town of Scotia and comprises the largest chunk of in-tact unprotected habitat for the federally listed Marbled Murrelet in California.


Logging in this rare habitat, which should be protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is allowed under provisions of the 1999 Headwaters Deal, negotiated by Senator Feinstein and other government officials and the infamous corporate raider Charles Hurwitz, CEO of Maxxam Corp.


The murrelet is listed as threatened under the ESA and as endangered under the California ESA. Permission granted by US Fish and Wildlife Service for ScoPac to log this critical habitat flies in the face of a 2004 report commissioned by that same agency that stated that current logging practices in Northern California threaten the small seabird with an 80% probability of extinction in the next 55 years, and a 100% probability of extinction in the next 95 years. The 250-acre plan was cynically named named "Bonanza" by PL.
