Rally to Protect Ancient Redwoods
by Luxomedia (renegade [at] luxomedia.com)
Tuesday Dec 6th, 2005 3:28 PM
Environmentalists from groups including Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters, Earth First!, Humboldt Forest Defense, EPIC, We Save Trees and R.A.N. assembled in front of Senator Feinsteins's downtown office to protest against the logging of Ancient Redwoods in the Nanning Creek Grove.

The 250-acre plan, dubbed "Bonanza" by Maxxam / Pacific Lumber includes trees as old as 2000 years old. The grove is home to the Marbled Murrelet, an endangered bird that should be protected under the Endangered Species Act. Charles Hurwitz, CEO of Maxxam Corp. was able to get around this legislation through negotiations with Senator Diane Feinstein and other government officials in the 1999 Headwaters Deal.

The logging adversely affects natural drainage systems and water resources as well as contributes to global warming. Maxxam Corporation, headquartered in Texas, is said to be on the verge of bankruptcy.
