Demonstration Against Clear-Cutting at Office Max in Pasadena

by RP Wednesday, Feb. 06, 2008 at 5:44 PM

Many people stopped and played the game ("Pin the Chain Saw on the Tree"). There was also a letter to Office Max, which people could sign. Numerous leaflets were distributed as well. A large, colorful banner caught the attention of many motorists and pedestrians.

On Saturday, Febuary 2, a demonstration was held in front of Office Max in Pasadena, one of some 30 similar actions at Office Maxes in the U.S./Canada.
Office Max sells paper derived from ancient forests that are home to the Grassy Narrows First Nation.
The issue is described in greater detail here: http://ran.org/what_we_do/old_growth/campaigns/officemax_grand_toy/

The Pasadena action included a game called "Pin the Chain Saw on the Tree." Passersby were invited to play this variation of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, which included a chain saw sound effect, by a speil resembling that of a carnival barker. When people succeeded in attaching a chain saw to the tree, the barker would ask, "Do you feel like Office Max now?"

Many people stopped and played this game. There was also a letter to Office Max, which people could sign. Numerous leaflets were distributed as well. A large, colorful banner caught the attention of many motorists and pedestrians. Some people expressed indifference, and one Office Max customer barked "GET A LIFE!" (Although, even this person couldn't keep from smiling at the "Chain Saw" game.) However, the overall reaction seemed positive.
