The unceded Pacheedaht and Ditidaht territory also known as Vancouver Island, British Colombia, has one of the oldest old-growth temperate rainforests on earth.  The Indigenous people who descend from these territories have been standing up to protect the last old-growth temperate rainforests on Vancouver island.  

“These forests are currently facing piecemeal and near-total eradication by the British Columbia government and logging companies.  Thirty-two soccer fields per day of old-growth temperate rainforest, representing the last 1% of these rare, irreplaceable and internationally-significant forest are logged every day on Vancouver island, alone.  In a downward spiraling climate and biodiversity crisis that threatens the future of all life on Earth – this situation calls for widespread non-violent civil disobedience.  We are here for all future generations and life on Earth.” – https://laststandforforests.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Last-Stand-Print-edition.-.pdf

There are currently two blocked positions on logging roads leading to road incursions into the unlogged, “Ada’itsx/Fairy Creek watershed, the last unlogged watershed in the San Juan river system including adjacent old-growth forests.” – https://laststandforforests.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Last-Stand-Print-edition.-.pdf
