Grassroots Activism

The Luna Tree Sit
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.

LunaOnly 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 17, 1998.

Judi Bari
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.
