The North Coast Earth First! movement is still movin', in Humboldt County, CA, in efforts to save Old Growth Redwood and Douglas fir forests. There are two tree-villages, "Fern Gully" and "Nanning Creek/Spooner," which have both been going on for years and need your support. We also have a "North Coast Earth First! Media" office, which provides a space for activists to make outreach material, check their e-mail, receive postal mail, work with still pictures and video, and take a load off their feet in a safe environment.
There are many ways to get involved, such as tree-sitting and helping to run supplies, and you can also support from afar, through our website, www.northcoastearthfirst.org. We know that many of you can't just drop everything, move to Humboldt Co., and go live in a tree for weeks, months, or years on end; we also know that there is a lot of support for saving some of the last Old Growth Redwoods left on Earth, and we want to get as many people involved as possible.
So, I've come up with an automatic monthly donation plan, via PayPal, so that we can build up a solid support base for our movement. We operate on a shoestring budget, and we know that many of you do, too, so there are a few different levels of support to choose from. If you're on a super-tight budget, there are the -a-month and -a-month levels; you can also choose from the -a-month and -a-month plans, if you're working with a bit of a larger budget. If we can get even fifty to one hundred people participating in this idea, on various levels, then our movement would be set, and we would be able to focus more time and energy on proactive work, as opposed to fundraising just to keep the boat afloat.

You can also learn more about our movement by navigating the website, checking out the streaming video and podcasts, visiting the links, and contacting us directly. This is a bit of a fund drive, so please pardon the focus on funding; once we get enough people participating, and have a firm foundation, then we can focus more on bringing you updates and the news you want to see on Indymedia.

We hope to hear from you soon! We're 100% volunteer, nobody gets paid, and we're standing up to the corporatism that is doing its best to destroy our planet and our freedoms. We know that many of you want to support real revolutionary groups, instead of watered-down mainstream organizations and "non-profits." By supporting Earth First!, you're supporting the front line of the resistance to corporate dominance and corruption.
No Compromise in Defense of Mother Earth! Earth First!
