Cascadia Forest Defenders Action Camp July 22nd – 25th 2011

This July activists are invited to to support direct action in defense
of a beloved, ancient coastal rainforest, the Elliott State Forest.
Under the watchful mismanagement of the Oregon Department of Forestry,
timber barons are actively razing this rare, 93,000 acre cathedral of
previously untouched wilderness. It's time for friends of Cascadia to
take a stand against the dozens of clearcuts on the table for 2011-2012.

Workshops will include: climb trainings, backwoods stealth and evasion,
know your rights, and anti-oppression.

Please come self-sufficient for camping with food and water/water filtration system.
We will have some resources but not for everyone and town will be an hour away.
You can use the rideshare board at the top of the blog for carpooling.
Stragglers can meet up outside of the Eugene Growers Market,
off of 5th near the Amtrak Station, on Friday a.m.
We will have directions there and possibly open seats.
Call Thomas at (530)521-4991 if you have other questions.

Come out to the forest for a weekend of skill building and get ready for a summer of RESISTANCE! The Action Camp is THE BEST WAY TO PLUG IN TO FOREST DEFENSE IN CASCADIA. So come for the weekend and stay for the summer.

On Friday May 22nd we will leave from the Grower’s Market (map) at 6pm and carpool to a forest location just 45 minutes from Eugene.

Please bring camping supplies and positive attitudes. Carpools will also leave from Growers on the 23rd at 8am, 24th at 8am and 25th at 8am. Rides will be returning throughout the weekend.

After the action camp, stick around and get plugged in to the movement. (there will be places to say and lots of work to do!)
