The Luna Tree Sit
Since December 10, 1997, Julia Butterfly Hill has been
living continuously in a 1,000-year-old Sequoia tree called Luna. Her
nonviolent act of civil disobedience is to protest the criminal logging of Northern California's ancient forests by the
corporate timber industry.
Only 3% of the old growth
redwoods remain, yet evil companies like Maxxam, owned by junk bond
billionaire Charles Hurwitz, are battling to cut them down. David
Chain, a young environmental activist in Humboldt County was killed by a tree felled by
an employee of the Pacific Lumber Company on September
In a related story, the late Judi Bari was also highly active in saving the
redwoods. Read an obituary on Judi written at the
time of her death.
What You Can
- Write or call Maxxam Inc. and implore them
to stop destroying the Northern California old growth forests.
