Overview

Six of BC's foremost environmentalists—including Tzeporah Berman and Christopher Hatch—offer well-documented essays that illuminate the issues behind the Clayoquot protests of 1993. The analysis reveals the lack of a scientific basis for forestry decisions, explains why Canada's forests continue to be destroyed, and proposes alternatives. Also discussed are the creation and philosophy of the Peace Camp, the radicalization of the public in response to the clear-cutting of ancient forests, and the abuse of the judicial system.
