Forest Camp Fundraiser on Indiegogo – Contribute Today

Dear Donors,

I am Kiyoshi Kosky and I grew up on Cortes Island. As a child, I was part of a blockade. We successfully stopped McMillan Bloedel from industrial clear cut logging our island and if we have to, we will do it again. Our island is threatened once again, as they are coming for our most precious resource, the old growth trees, and will be liquidating our mature second growth forest also.

This time, the beast is Brookfield Asset Management Corporation, based in Toronto. The company is an off-shore conglomerate avoiding Canadian taxes. It does not care for the well-being of our community and the ecology on the island…

…We have built a Forest Camp to defend our community and land. We need your donations to help fund our Forest Camp and help with the impending possibility of blockading against Island Timberlands. The money will be used to buy food and supplies for the camp. If for some reason, the money is not used to fight against this intrusion, then we will put the donated funds towards the purchase of Island Timberlands lands on the island….

Visit Indiegogo to read the full story and contribute today.
