"In Defense of the Biscuit is simultaneously beautiful, heartbreaking, and inspiring. It is the story of one of the most beautiful places on earth, and of the courageous individuals and groups who are defending this place from devastation caused by huge corporations and criminal logging company operators who are protected in their illegal activities by armed (selective) law enforcement officers. Watch this film, and then go join these or other activists on the front lines of forest defense". Derrick Jensen, author, A Language Older Than Words, The Culture of Make Believe.
