UC Berkley is planning next week to remove the Oaks Grove protesters from high in the canopy using old Pacific Lumber(PL) henchman, Eric Schatz, according to the the recent article in the San Francisco Gate. Long time activists experienced with PL's violent and life-endangering tactics are concerned about Berkley's choice to utilize Eric Schatz, whose sketchy methods have brought lawsuits against PL, as well as himself. (Photo of Erik choking a Forest Defender on a branch hundreds of feet above the ground, the Tree-Sitter has no safety on) Frank Bacik, vice president for Pacific Lumber, also stated over the past few years, the most successful means of removing treesitters is ignoring them. However, Frank's comment is much further from the truth. Two Humboldt Forest Actions will celebrate the success of maintaining two actions, one of which for six years of dedicated occupation, as the two Timber Harvest Plans expire this fall. Let's just say Frank is lying...again. The last time Schatz was in one of our trees was in the Fall of 2007. No one was extracted. Humboldt Forest Defense is putting out an ACTION ALERT for the UC Berkley Oaks Tree-sit. We are calling all Forest Defenders from past and present to come to support your brothers and sisters fighting for this sacred space. We need your help now! Please help protect the Oaks and protect the lives of their defenders. Visit http://www.saveoaks.com/SaveOaks/Main.html to learn about the location of this long running action and history. Map Let's help the Oaks continue to stand by standing(and sitting) together in peace, non-violence and solidarity! The extraction could be attempted at any moment. Please come show your support of these amazing trees and the fearless protecters who defend them. In peace and love for trees, Jeff Muskrat
