OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOur friends in the Willits area that we are working with opposing the Caltrans Bypass Highway just put out this Action Camp announcement. It’s a beautiful time of year to go up to Willits, and there is much to do to save the wetlands and woodlands.

Call to Action! Action Camp Opens April 7-14!

Your help is needed to sustain our nonviolent resistance to Caltran’s Bypass project through Little Lake Valley in Willits. Please join us at Action Camp.

Construction has started. On April 2, tree sitter Warbler was roughly wrested from her perch and her Ponderosa pine cut down. Tree sitters Celsius and Caspian, Falcon and Eagle have also been brutally forced from their trees.  Many more large old hardwoods are being cut down every working day.

We will not back down in the face of overwhelming force and police-state tactics. Our love for the Valley is stronger than that. Please join us at Action Camp to help slow the destruction until a legal resolution can be reached.

Who?  Local and out of town activists who want to protect the Valley welcome!

What?  A place to meet, camp out, train and organize together for nonviolent direct
action. Nonviolence, climbing, back woods training, camp care and set up Lots to do!

When?  April 7-14 and after as needed.  Arrive Saturday evening after the Rally for the
Valley at 2-6 p.m. in Recreation Grove in Willits

Where? On a beautiful parcel just west of Willits generously donated by a local supporter

Why?  To protest Caltrans’ planned destruction of Paradise to put up a Freeway Bypass.

Please no dogs as cows are in the fields. Come for any amount of time you can contribute or camp the whole week. See you there!
