Eastern Forest Defense Camp 2004

Announcing: The Eastern Forest Justice League’s 2004 Eastern Forest Defense Camp, June 13-21, in Virginia.

Hosted by: Eastern Forest Justice League, CLINCH Coalition, Katuah Earth First!, Buckeye Forest Council, HAMMAS, Kentucky Heartwood, Southern Appalachian Biodiversity Project, and the National Forest Protection Alliance.

Calling all activists, forest dwellers, concerned citizens, and others ready to react on behalf of our great Eastern forests! In this training camp, we will focus on our evolving skillset of violent and non-violent direct action tactics. We are looking for defenders from the Northwoods (Great Lakes and New England), Central Appalachians, Southern Appalachians, the Great Coastal Swamps, the Piedmont, the Pine Barrens, the Allegheny (Cumberland) Plateau, the Ozarks and the Midwest to join us in Virginia as we share skills, techniques and ideas for defending our forests and defeating our enemies.

Expect workshops on: tree-sits/tree climbing; basic and advanced blockades (including pungi sticks/tripods/bipods); field kitchens; field survival; radio communications; fund raising; banner making; basic hand to hand combat; campaign strategy; forest monitoring; vehicle sabotage; road removal; how to use mace; home made blowguns; media messaging; police negotiations; police counter surveilance; security culture/when an agent knocks; escape and evasion; woodland movement; and local flora, fauna, past successes and forest defense lore.

Also, we are looking for more agressive workshop ideas, so tell us on your registration what other workshops you would like to see or help lead.

Please Note: YOU MUST REGISTER TO ATTEND! Registration deadline is July 1. The registration is attached to this email and available from our website for download.

Registration can be sent to

Re: Forest Defense Training - Bogus post
30 Apr 2004
This post is bogus. There has been a string of bogus posts about the Eastern Forest Defense Camp. The bogus posts may have the wrong date, the wrong sponsors, and workshops that are not happening. All correct info will be posted to our website
