On February 16, 2014 two groups set out from opposite directions on Highway 77 to demonstrate their opposition to a law written by and passed for GTac that prohibits public access to managed forest land around mining activity sites. Nearly 100 people marched to the Moore Park Siding for a press conference, and several dozen breached the “Forbidden Zone” to enjoy the gorgeous, sparkling winter day in the Penokee Hills.
There were no arrests and no visible presence of law enforcement officials.
A huge THANK YOU to all the brave souls who are working so incredibly hard to stop the corporate monster from destroying our beautiful area.
