AFN press release--Stop Logging

Ahousaht territory holds almost two-thirds of the ancient rainforest in all of Clayoquot Sound. Once almost all of it was threatened with clearcut logging; now it is preserved for future generations. Friends of Clayoquot Sound send our biggest respect, thanks, and solidarity to the Ahousaht Hawiih and muuschim for their heroic  vision and courage!

The Clayoquot Sound Conservation Alliance, a group of five ENGOs that has been working on Clayoquot Sound issues for many years, applauds this initiative and today issued this press release in reaction (click image for full PDF, text also on CSCA Facebook page).
