Earth First!/Greg King lured impressionable young people to come in as cannon fodder to STOP THE CUTTING OF TREES, and one of them, David Chain, LOST HIS LIFE - then you have Greg King standing in front of the Board of Supervisors stating that he owns TPZ land AND HE PLANS TO CUT THE TREES.
Mark Lovelace/Greg King/Larry Evans stood up and said they wanted to see the lands stay as timber production - are they then willing to DROP all their obstructionist tactics and constant lawsuits? Are they willing to aid Palco, Green Diamond, Sierra Pacific. and all the others? To save the logging industry? God that's rich!
