Message from Wendell State Forest Alliance

The loggers are in our forest. We need a physical show of support at the Wendell State Forest

Stand in support of the Wendell State Forest Protectors at Wendell State Forest. Hold a sign. Signs available or make your own. 

You can stand in support of the forest protectors who are getting arrested. Please come now. 

It is not necessary to risk arrest. You can still stand in support of those who are willing to risk arrest. 

Two forest protectors were arrested yesterday, while standing in peaceful constitutionally protected protest in front of the logging entrance on a public way. 

This is our constitutional protected right to peacefully protest about the taking of our forested against our will.

Thank You For All Your Outstanding Support
