I.T.’s (Island Timberlands) coming! But before we get stumped, let’s organize. On December 3rd and 4th Zoe Blunt (prolific eco-activist) and Peter Edelman (social justice lawyer) will be on island to walk, talk, and workshop us through discussions on community organizing, forestry campaigns, strategies, legal rights, and more. On Saturday there will be a walk through threatened I.T. owned land, where we will begin our discussion on strategies. Join us afterward for a potluck dinner with our guests Zoe and Peter. On Sunday Peter will be facilitating an in-depth “Know Your Rights” workshop and Zoe will continue to lead discussions on strategy and community organizing specific to forestry campaigns.
Industrial logging is not inevitable, we can stop I.T. before I.T. stumps us!
