yesterday a group of Cascadia Earth First!ers and Rising Tide members took action against the continued liquidation and destruction of Oregon's Elliot State Forest. Using sky pods, bipods, road blockades, overturned cargo vans, lock downs and many other beautiful installations, the road to Umpcoos Ridge timber sale has been occupied, held and reclaimed for the forest, the people and future generations.

This morning the block was raided with 60+ cops who came equipt with bulldozers etc.

22 protesters are being held at the Douglas County jail in Roseburg, Oregon. Protesters on the outside of the blockade have been forced 5 miles away from the blockade. It is highly likely, based on screams that police are using PAIN COMPLIANCE on the locked down protesters.

As more info as to how people can show solidarity arises word will be put up...for more info  http://www.forestdefensenow.org/
