The Fire and Forests Roadshow 2004
Save the Wild Siskiyou!
Sunday April 4, Oakland, CA
7pm, Mills College Student Union (Free)

This April, a merry band of performers, activists and trainers known as the
Oxygen Collective will climb aboard their forty-foot biodiesel bus and
travel the West Coast for the 2004 Fire and Forests Roadshow. The trip will
include 15 stops from San Francisco, CA to Bellingham, WA. Expect live music
and laughter, action video and information.

Fire has become the latest government excuse to log our precious public
lands. "Thin 'em before they burn, salvage 'em after they burn," says the
Forest Service. We are told that wildfire is unnatural and an imminent
threat; that a burned forest is dead forever.

The issue has gone critical in Southern Oregon with the Bush proposal for
the largest timber sale in modern history! From the heart of the world's
most diverse conifer forest, there is a plan that would fill a line of
loaded log trucks bumper to bumper from Mexico to Canada. The big lie known
as the Biscuit Fire Recovery Plan is the greatest threat the Siskiyou Wild
Rivers area has ever known.

In the face of these poisonous lies, the O2 Collective appears on the scene
bringing evidence, science and spirit to the issue of fire in the forest. In
their wake they will leave a trail of people informed, inspired and
empowered to protect the land we all love.
