This four-page newsletter from the Ukiah Earth First! chapter recounts a number of actions taken in protest against the clearing of old-growth redwoods, provides an update on the Cahto Wildnerness Coalition lawsuit, and shares a call to action.

Back in the early ’60s, the Civil Rights Movement found themselves in a similar situation in Mississippi, unable to break the stranglehold of the powers-that-be, but backed by substantial public support both locally and nationally. What they did was to put out a nationwide call for people to come ride the buses to Mississippi and help challenge the rule of racism. We need to do the same thing here now to save the forests.
