Helping Defend Nanning Creek Giants
Mattole Defenders are lending assistance to the Nanning Creek Forest Defenders. The tree-sits have been raided by climbers contracted by Pacific Lumber and some supplies and gear confiscated. Thankfully so far no tree-sitters have been taken down. It is unclear whether two people reportedly arrested in the area were associated with the action. Friends and supporters of the tree-sitters held a vigil at the main access gate in Scotia. Unspecified direct-support efforts on the ground have been successful so far in helping the sitters.
