On September 17, 1998, Gypsy was killed in the Grizzly Creek area, trying to prevent the clearcut destruction of the ancient forests by Pacific Lumber Company. After years of Corporate Timber fomenting hate and fear toward environmentalists - encouraging its workers and managers to feel justified using violence against Earth First!ers (violence often exceeded by the cops and and sanctioned by the DA)- a Pacific Lumber employee felled a tree on Gypsy.
May we always LEARN and REMEMBER. LOVE and ORGANIZE.
And BRING DOWN THIS ROTTEN SYSTEM.
Song from David Rovics: The Death of David Chain
