In this episode Max speaks with Joshua Wright, a front-line activist who was amongst the first involved in blockading access to Fairy Creek, trying to prevent ancient old-growth forests from being destroyed by logging companies. There have been over 1000 arrests making it one of the largest acts of civil disobedience in Canadian history. These on the ground activists continue to camp on site despite pressure from the loggers to endanger both the forest and its present inhabitants.
The injunction against the protestors which ran from April until the end of September of this year was not allowed to be extended. But that decision was overturned and a new interim injunction is now in place until November 15th, so this is a crucial moment in the continuation of this blockade.
We include a poem by Linda Hogan recited by Anita Stewart.
