Here are some photos that I took yesterday at the rally yesterday at the CalTrans headquarters in Eureka. One protester was arrested after climbing on the roof. She was hoping to lock to other activists, but the police took the ladder down before anyone else could climb it. Some of the protester then marched to the jail to demand her release, but she was let go before they got there.

Federal case against Caltrans is awarded injunction until July 2011 in which project bidding may commence unless Caltrans is found to have violated environmental regulations. Which they have, in the Richardson Grove "Improvement" Project(RIP) Environmental Impact Report(EIR).
Bidding for the RIP cannot commence until July 2011 and any type of road work, vegetation removal, etc. for the RIP until after 30 days after the project goes to bid.
Many thanks to EPIC, CATS and The Center for Biological Diversity for their hard work on this very important matter. Please help support the Federal case against Caltrans by donating to these well respected non-profit environmental organizations.
It is very important to continue to put pressure on Caltrans with direct action to stop this project...
