Sat Jun 24 2006Knob Timber Sale Loses 9th Circuit Appeal
Sat Jun 24 2006Forest Activists Call for Direct Action
Old-growth forest near Siskiyou County’s wild and scenic Salmon River is headed for the auction block - and the chopping block - after losing a years-long battle in court. The Knob Timber Sale is part of a large scale logging plan that includs the Glassups Timber Sale which was cut in 2003, and the Meteor Timber Sale which is still winding through the courts.
The combined cumulative post-logging effects on the Salmon River and the wildlife that depends on this old-growth forests has activists calling for protests. “The movement fighting to stop harmful and un-lawful logging is a multi-limbed creature,” said Salmon River Forest Defenders. “When the ‘arm’ of litigation tires…the muscular arm of direct action re-emerges.”
