Treetop protest: Activists mark four years of tree-sitting (SCOTT MABEN,  April 20, 2002, The Register Guard)
It was four years ago today when two young men climbed 180 feet up an old growth Douglas fir in the Willamette National Forest to block plans to log 96 acres of timber. Protesters say they've been there every day since, making it the longest continuous tree-sit against old growth logging in the Northwest.

Does it bother anyone else that these guys have essentially turned these poor trees into beasts of burden and have been riding them for four years without giving them a break? You wouldn't even do something like that to a jackass. Although in this case the jackasses are in the saddle. Posted by Orrin Judd at April 20, 2002 2:46 PM
