We will not stand for the desecration of the trees, streams,
and creatures at the hands of greedy developers. Despite overwhelming public
opposition to these developments, the real estate companies and development

economic damage on them. Join us in taking militant direct action against the
developers in your neck of the woods. We must take responsibility for the land
that sustains us!
