Cascadia Forest Defenders are the last line of defense between the forest and the sawmills. We are decentralized activists working together to stop the ecologically devastating and economically exploitative industrial timber harvest practices though community outreach, grassroots organizing, political pressure and non-violent direct action. We can also offer training and resources to other groups working for environmental and social justice.
We have been working for the last four years to protect the Elliott State Forest, a 93,000 acre temperate rainforest in southwest Oregon, from being destroyed by clearcutting. We are an ongoing campaign based out of Eugene, Oregon with almost weekly events, large gatherings and a hundred different ways that you can plug in. Whether it is reposting news pieces online or standing with us in a forest blockade, there are ways for anyone with enthusiasm to get involved. You can check us out online at forestdefensenow.com
