Audio: Voices of the Mattole Forest Defenders
by Alicia Littletree, Mendocino Earth First!
Monday Jan 15th, 2001 9:35 PM
Total time 20:45. Hear the voices of the Mattole Forest Defenders, as they introduce themselves and describe the struggle to defend some of the last of the ancient Douglas Fir forests from plunder by Maxxam/ Pacific Lumber Company. The activists describe the area, confrontations with police and logging crews, pepper spray and arrests, and the complex blockades they have built twelve miles into PL company land to keep the trees standing, with contact information at the end. Community and Micro radio producers are encouraged to rebroadcast this collage of voices from the front lines!
