Details

Click here to view the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuYWKvc9hy4 "Toorbos" explores the uprooting of a young forest woman and her community during the time of the last forest inhabitants of South Africa's Knysna forest of the 1930's. This film was South Africa's official entry to the 93rd Annual Academy Awards in 2021. This movie is part of the South African Film Festival (SAFF) and you can access it here: https://watch.eventive.org/saffcanada2021/play/6114430a2a60bd00a01eecde Click here to view more films in this festival: https://saffcanada2021.eventive.org/films SAFF Canada is a festival with a heart.

Take a moment (well, 30 moments) and listen to the latest interview on Gorilla radio re the logging at Fairy Creek. You may have heard Jackie Larkin interviewed by Chris a few weeks ago ... today's interview is with Richard Boyce, documentary film maker who reports on the logging practises that threaten the old-growth forests and the unique animals, insects and ecosystems that exist in their canopies. http://www.gorilla-radio.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Gorilla-Radio-with-Chris-Cook-Richard-Boyce-Alan-MacLeod-October-14-2021EDIT2.mp3?fbclid=IwAR2LyAZQlKYzZdfuVQQ9RteUcxSVeBjmPJBrmm7vWkU2m9Ny7vRvdKbtR14 http://www.gorilla-radio.com/2021/09/04/gorilla-radio-chris-cook-david-swanson-jackie-larkin-september-9-2021/

From Susan Bibbings: Lovely to meet the group and share yesterday. It’s difficult to do postings etc out here in the forest so the best I can do is to forward this email on to you regarding support for the legal fight.

Friends and supporters, Our legal front lines need our help! On November 15, we're back in court facing Teal Cedar, who is pushing hard to extend the injunction. We can't let them win. We’ve set a goal to raise 1 MILLION DOLLARS to defeat this injunction once and for all and ensure we have a legal defence fund for the future. With your support, we will win in court and set a new precedent, one that could provide a legal roadmap for other land and water defenders. If the injunction IS extended, and the RCMP are empowered to continue arresting us and escorting industry into the woods, these forests will be lost forever. https://mailchi.mp/987957af1ca2/help-us-win-on-the-legalfrontlines?e=dca7ec34ef Please contribute if you can!

And another from Susan: Hello Wendy, I also thought you and your group might be interested in supporting this GoFundMe, for Shy-Anne https://gofund.me/54727cdf Funds for Afro-Indigenous Land Defender, organized by Desiree Biasini Shy-Anne Gunville (also known as ‘Strawberry’) is a disabled Afro-Indigneous… Desiree Biasini needs your support for Funds for Afro-Indigenous Land Defender gofund.me . Even a small donation helps. And if you can't make a donation, it would be great if you could share the fundraiser to help spread the word. Thanks for taking a look! Susan
