Haida Blockade Weyerhaeuser Logging Operations

Indymedia: Haida are blocking Weyerhaeuser logging and barges across Haida Gwaii, "BC." Having trashed much of their holdings on Haida Gwaii (aka Queen Charlotte Islands), Weyerhaeuser is trying to cut and run by selling off their liscence to Brascan without Haida consent. It may not prove to be so easy.

To all Islands people,

GWAII SGAANAWAAY SIIGAA IJAA
ISLANDS SPIRIT RISING

WHAT HAS HAPPENED?
Logging and barges have been stopped today. Individuals are standing together in Queen Charlotte and on the road by East Yakoun, near Juskatla.

The action is taking place as Weyerhaeuser is poised to sell off the Tree Farm License to Brascan. The
slogans on the road say it all - Enough is Enough.

Weyerhaeuser and the Ministry of Forests have shown complete disregard for our communities? needs and wishes. This was shown when the BC government
compromised the Land Use Plan by approving cutting in areas that the Islands community had designated protected. The Land Use Plan was designed by all Island
communities to ensure a sustainable future for Haida Gwaii.

The action on the road at both ends of the Island is taking place to address these serious issues that affect us all. If we don?t move forward together the opportunities for change and a stable economy will no longer exist for us. These are first steps towards tackling issues, the forest companies, and the province of BC.

The Islands community is serious about change ? the future is now!

Volunteers are needed to be part of this all-Islands action.
