They display a banner reading "Ancient Forest Protection Starts Here" and they 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.
