Come to a party and fundraiser with Mike Roselle, co-founder of Earth First!, Rainforest Action Network and the Ruckus Society, for the release of his new book "Treespiker From Lowbagging to Earth First!: My Struggles in the Radical Environmental Movement"

Lauded by some, despised by others, Mike Roselle is one of the most controversial figures in the crusade to protect the environment. Mike has succeeded in stopping a lumber project by spiking trees, struggled with death threats and the car bombing of fellow activist Judi Bari, endured countless days in jail, infiltrated the Nevada Test Site to delay nuclear bomb detonation, helped put a gas mask on Mount Rushmore’s George Washington, and aided actor Woody Harrelson in draping a banner over the Golden Gate Bridge.

He has spent over thirty years fighting back against big business, negligent management and the lawless actions of the government itself for the safety and preservation of our great earth. Please come hear his stories.

Evening will include an auction, music, book readings and cash bar
