Earth First Humboldt has just announced that an action camp will start on September 5 and run through September 13. Tree climbing, backwoods, and non-violent direct action are some of the trainings that will be happening at the camp. More details will be coming soon, and more information is posted at http://efhumboldt.org/

A new tree-village in Six Rivers National forest was recently evacuated because of the nearby Hells Half wildfire. The air in the area has been very unhealthy due to heavy smoke. The tree-sit was in the Burnt Ranch and the Underwood Mountain area. Forest defenders were trying to stop the building of a road in a roadless area. Sierra Pacific Industries is hoping to use the road to access old-growth on their property that is adjacent to the National Forest. A press release about the action was posted today by Earth First! Humboldt on their website at http://efhumboldt.org/

If you are interested in Humboldt County forest defense, keep an eye on a new website: efhumboldt.org. There is not much there right now, but I expect that to change soon. I see a lot of new energy coming into the movement and this new website is the first publicly visible sign. People may think that with the entrance of MRC, that there is no more reason for forest defense, but that is not the case at all. Green Diamond, Pacific Lumber, and Sierra Pacific all have bad plans coming up.
