Treesitting on Fisher land in the Albion
People have been living in the trees in the Albion river area for several weeks now (June 1999) to prevent the Fishers' logging company, Mendocino Redwood, from logging an area with active slides. As the treesitters' banner says, "Slides Kill Fish!" dirt from logging in unstable areas gets in the river and muddies the water, so that salmon cannot spawn. Only about 200 salmon were found in the Albion in surveys in 1994-96. The Coho salmon is almost extinct in this river, where the Fishers of Gap, Inc. are heavily logging in order to add to their 11 billion dollar fortune. For information about the Tree Sit, call (707) 468-1660.
