For a couple days now a woman has been sitting in a tree on Bainbridge Island
to block the construction of a mini-mall and to protect the trees the would
be clear cut and the ecosystem that would be devastated. We noticed that
despite the media spectacle and the police presence there was really no one
watching the woods. Dawning black from head to toe in the bright light of day
we spiked about 1/8th of the trees with ceramic rods.
Now some of you may say that tree spiking is dangerous, but only one worker
has ever been hurt by a tree spike and he admitted that it was due to the
poor safety conditions at the mill he worked at. Metal, rocks, and the like
get caught on trees all the time. The most common of these is barbed wire
which has mutilated many-a-worker, but something no one seems to complain
about. This is probably because people care more about property than another
Anyway, solidarity with all those wonderful rebels out there.
