Movie Highlighting Nanning Cr. Gate Action, Nov 9th
Latest movie highlighting Actions currently taking place in Humboldt Co., to protect Nanning Cr. THP 05-097.
On the Morning of Nov. 9th, 2005, activists and community members gathered at the front gate to the Nanning Cr. Timber Harvest area, protesting the cutting of this once protected and largest remaining stand of privately owned Old Growth Redwoods.
A one-log-truck was stopped by the group, and two women sat down in front of it to block it. At that time, another activist was targeted, arrested, and pepper-sprayed by the Humboldt Co. Sherriffs Dept. The victim of the attack suffers asthma and was severly affected by the spray. He left the scene in an Ambulance that activists called, after the Sherriffs refused to do, after several requsts from the victim and the crowd.
While arresting the individual, the Sherriffs became distracted, and the two women climbed on top of the logging truck! Pain compliance holds (physical holds designed to invoke compliance) and carelessness were the main tactics used in removing the two women from the logging truck. All those arrested were booked into the Humbodt Co. Jail until arraignment. The Sherriffs of course went to a meeting with high level Pacific Lumber officials to have lunch and get paid off.
More action to come in the Nanning Cr. area, and you are needed! Every day more trees are cut down. This forest is irreplaceable. Call now to get involved, and check our site to learn more.
May the Forest Be With You!
