Will we once more see zero help from "Forest Defenders" on helping Native Americans and Palco workers save Palco from another batch of out of area, out of state, corporate super richies?

You'll talk about everything but the Heartlands project and we will both watch 200,000 acres be transfered to a Maxxam/MRC/Marathon ownership, or perhaps a plaything for the Beals addition for yet more land for Red Emmerson.

Do the right thing. Save the trees forever, transfer ownership of one third of PL back to its original stewards, and two-thirds back to Palco workers owning their own company. Help us.
