Talk by Goldman Prize winners at Busboys & Poets

Corruption, War and Timber


What do Siberian tigers, tropical rainforests and American jobs have in common? They are all impacted by illegal logging. Every two seconds, an area of forest the size of a football field is lost to illegal logging driving corruption, threatening our environment, and undercutting U.S. workers.

This June, two inspiring activists who have fought illegal logging in their home countries of Liberia and Peru will join Sierra Club for a special presentation on corruption, war and timber. Together, we will discuss what the United States can do to stop the illegal timber trade.

WHO: Goldman Prize award winner, Silas Siakor of Liberia, Julia Urrunaga of Peru, Roy Houseman of the United Steelworkers, local Sierra Club supporters and you!

WHAT: Corruption, War and Timber: First-hand accounts of illegal logging in Liberia and Peru. Refreshments will be provided.

    I'm going to try to make this, even though andy shallal is a loser (in the dc mayoral race, now between brouser and catania; and graham of ward 1 lost; 14th and v has changed a bit from the good old days of 1968 riots). A whole lot of eels are migrating up rock creek now (even documented on youtube, the mergansers (diving ducks) have families too, serviceberries and snakes are out, but ramps are gone for the season)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
