From the Earth First! Newswire:
A coalition of environmental groups staged a protest Monday morning [Jan 28] along Highway 101 to protest the construction of the highway bypass around Willits.
Dozens of protestors from Earth First! joined with a newly formed Willits group called Save our Little Lake Valley in an effort to stop the planned tree cutting along the bypass footprint. In addition to picket signs, a local woman is now living on a platform nestled in top of one of the trees slated for removal. Picketers on the ground vowed to support her tree sitting protest for as long as it takes.
