Jewish Women on the Map - Clayoquot Sound
From JWA's page on Environmental Activism, contributed by Wendy Oberlander:
"Sixteen years ago, an unprecedented blockade took place, over many months, on Vancouver Island. What became known as the Clayoquot Protest, was a protest against the logging of old growth forests; it was a highly successful campaign.
"Although it was a grassroots movement without an intentional hierarchy, two leaders emerged from this period: Tzipporah Berman and Valerie Langer. Both are extraordinary women - they must be included here!"
