EMERGENCY RALLY !! Tuesday Dec. 6 at noon

One Post St. @ Market, San Francisco

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 250-acre plan was cynically named named "Bonanza" by PL.
