Defending the Land in Northern California
A presentation by Will Parrish

Highway construction, land and water grabs and deforestation pose major threats to California’s North Coast bioregions. But to paraphrase Foucault, where there is destruction by state and corporate power, there is also resistance.

This presentation will describe several direct action resistance movements in the North Coast region in recent years, with a major focus on the anti-highway struggle in Willits. The Willits Bypass threatens greater destruction of wetlands than any project in Northern California in the last 50 years.

Come hear inspiring stories of community efforts to defend the land, and learn about plans for future action this summer and beyond and how you can lend support!
