“These forests are the last intimate and private places for my soul” said Elder Bill Jones (shown in previous slide), a key figure for the protection of the fairy creek old growth and member of the local First Nation people- the Pacheedaht. Demonstrating that “usage,” in an industrial sense, is not limited to dollars and cents and often doesn’t properly encompass a forest’s cultural and historical value in the consideration of legal protection.

New story with @i_d is here. The last great watershed of ancient old-growth forest in British Columbia lies threatened by logging. These thousand-year-old towering yellow cedars in Fairy Creek now serve as an environmental and cultural battleground between pro-conservation groups, @fairycreekblockade @rainforestflyingsquad @ancientforestalliance @endangeredecosystemsalliance , and pro-industry lobbyists/loggers, Teal Jones. To complicate matters even further, this grand watershed sits upon Pacheedaht land, a First Nations group with a history of colonist erasure. These ancient yellow cedar trees are considered incredibly financially valuable, and though the Pacheedaht are entitled to a small sum of financial compensation from the logging, a Teal Jones gag order and a group of green-minded Pacheedaht have brought new consideration to whether the pillaging of these ancient forests is truly worth the price. Now, with the court clearing of a legal injunction in Teal Jones’ favour that will cement the fate of the trees, activists mentally and physically prepare to stop the loggers. Check out @ancientforestalliance @rainforestflyingsquad and @endangeredecosystemsalliance for resources on how to better get involved, and keep up with my coverage over next couple days.
