There’s a bill in congress which will restructure how Oregon’s BLM and Forest Service land is managed, and some are calling it a giveaway to lumber corporations. The bill will remove environmental protections and allow “old growth” to be defined by an unelected panel. If it passes, there will more clear cuts and herbicide sprays. The land right outside my door is at risk.
Outraged by this money driven system, I was inspired to get political and use my talent to help sway public opinion. Our congressman, Peter DeFazio, will be holding a town hall meeting locally, and with logging supporters pledging to show up in full force, it’s sure to be a fiery assembly. I plan to distribute these flyers broadly and enjoy the show.
