Plenty of Sun at Earth First! Conference

The weather was great last week in SoCal for the Earth First! Organizers' Conference in the Los Padres National Forest. Much thanks to the Spirit Pine Sanctuary for letting us spend a week there. The only disappointment that I can think of is that few of the organizers from the East Coast could make it because of the big snow storm grounding their flights. Had lots of fun on the night to howl.

EF! Winter Rendezvous Ends with Anti-oil Actions

The annual Earth First Organizers' Conference and Winter Rendezvous ended with a day of actions in Santa Barbara against offshore oil drilling. The first action was a protest at the PXP Oil Heating Facility in Gaviota. Activists then went to the office of the Environmental Defense Center to protest their support for new offshore drilling. Next was a stop at Stearn's Wharf and finally protesters gave out leaflets on State Street.
