A week ago, Ancient Forest Alliance campaigners Ken Wu, TJ Watt, and Hannah Carpendale were in Port Hardy on northern Vancouver Island, where the Kwakiutl First Nation Band is currently protesting Island Timberlands' logging operations near their reserve. They invited us to meet community members, document the logging and protest, and support their efforts. Here are some photos of the old-growth redcedars, some of them 700 years old, that Island Timberlands recently cut which the Kwakiutl are preventing them from hauling off, and of the protest. Currently the Kwakiutl leadership are in discussions with the company while the protest continues. • Photos by TJ Watt.
