Ninth Aniversary of David Chain's Death

Nine years ago today, David Nathan Chain, whose forest name was Gypsy, was killed when a PALCO logger felled a tree on top of him. I had just come to Humboldt County and was involved with the forest actions in the Grizzly Creek area where Gypsy was killed. I had been arrested the day before in the same logging plan. Despite evidence that the logger A. E. Ammons had threatened the protesters shortly before he cut the tree, no charges were ever filed.
