They display banners and suspend a specially engineered structure high over logging roads in pristine forest that is slated to be cut. Other volunteers place themselves in the path of trucks and bulldozers, while a group of Alaskans lock themselves to road building equipment. Greenpeace has set up these stations as part of its escalating campaign for a moratorium on industrial logging on public lands and for greater protection and restoration of endangered forests.Locations:Alaska-United States of AmericaDate:3 Aug, 2004Credit:© Dang Ngo / GreenpeaceMaximum size:2048px X 3072pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Ancient forests-Clearcutting-Commercial logging-Day-Deforestation-Forests (campaign title)-Greenpeace activists-KWCI (GPI)-Medium group of people-Outdoors-Police-Rainforests-Roads-Trees-TrucksShoot:Forest Blockade Action TongassGreenpeace activists blockaded a log transfer station and a new road near Petersburg in the Tongass National Forest with a series of triipods to protest he Bush administration revoking the roadless status of the Tongass.
