Humboldt EF!ers had a great time last week at Grizzly Creek with the Earth First! Roadshow crew. The Roadshow had a great puppet show about security culture, and slideshow about the history of the movement. Some activists hiked to the spot where David "Gypsy" Chain was killed by a logger in 1998. After the camp some forest defenders went to the McKay tract to show support for the tree-sitters there. The last few days saw a surge of activity around the sit by Green Diamond loggers.

The 2009 Earth First! Roadshow will arrive in Humboldt County on June 16 at Grizzly Creek State Park. The Roadshow has been touring the country to renew the Earth First! movement and conduct direct action workshops. Some of the road crew were recently arrested at a Home Depot in Colorado while protesting against dams in Patagonia. Their presentation will include a puppet show, slideshow and an introduction to Earth First! Group camping and a group kitchen will be available at Grizzly Creek from June 16-18.
