Clear-cut Logging Road In Jacoby Creek Blockaded
Thu Aug 19 2010 (Updated 08/26/10)
Forest Defenders Scale Rope Structures to Block Entrance of Humbolt Logging Road
Early in the morning on August 17th, forest defenders set up a 60-foot high road blockade to stop the active clear-cutting operations of Green Diamond Resource Company in the redwoods near Jacoby Creek Road north of Eureka in Humboldt County. These clear-cut logging plans represent a fraction of the ongoing clear-cut logging operations in Northern California.

“We are not coming down voluntarily until the reckless logging in the Jacoby Creek watershed is stopped,” said Fly, one of the activists from atop the 60 ft. high hanging platform.

Citing concern for the local redwood ecosystem as well as global climate change, the activists scaled rope structures made to block the entrance of a logging road. The blockades were constructed so that if moved or damaged, the activists could fall from a considerable height. Several pickup trucks and a van full of workers had to turn back when they arrived. One of the workers from the van started cutting the rope before supporters on the ground could stop him.

EF! Humbolt update, 8/20/10: As of this 10:00 am today, the logging road is open and the highly destructive clear-cutting of the Redwoods within the Jacoby Creek watershed continues.
