The many blockades over the summers of 1991-93 brought those attempting to stop road building and logging and those who made their living working for the corporations. It was a pretty antagonistic relationship, how could it not be, but it was a failure in those years that our two differing worlds couldnt find more things in common. In the summer of '92' Rhada Bhatt a member of the Chipko forest defenders in India visited the Walbran. She commented that we needed a peoples movement and not just an activist movement, that all of us have to be involved in protecting the forest. Thanks to jason millar for the photo.
