In the struggle and for the wild-

Penokee Defenders

High Fives and hugs to all fellow defenders of the land/bioregions out there and Happy June 11-the two year anniversary of the raid on the Penokee mine site which I’m currently incarcerated for, as well as International Solidarity with eco-prisoners Day. A continued decline of taconite (low grade iron ore) in conjunction with continued resistance to industrial mining in the Ojiibwe territory of the northwest Great Lakes Bio region in Wisconsin will keep air, land and water colonialists at bay for now, but there’s constantly wild to defend and re wilding to do around every corner. As the word “resources” in this context connotes pretentious anthropomorphism, I will continue to refer to miners as “air, land and water colonialists”

There’s always so much happening and so many things to say and not say, so let’s start with the fun and obvious one: Fuck the State, the FBI, the NSA, more often than not the DNR, state repression, oppression of all kinds, snitches, police and all their lackey affiliates, liberal reformists, modern day work, many symbolic actions, pacifism and finally fuck totalitarian style agriculture and all that it supports, such as the military and endless urban and industrial expansion of western consumer culture. May creative resistance to eco-cide continue and the fires against police brutality rage on, as the first line of resistance against our resistance is usually the cops.

That being said, though I am making the most of my current situation, I despise being caged and feel deeply for all my rad comrades who have endured or continue to endure prison/jail sentences, as it can be a lonely place emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. I was an anti-domestication advocate prior to incarceration and even more so now because of it. We must not forget our comrades in lock up, as prisoner/jaillee support pre and post release is of the utmost importance, having advocates in the relatively free world makes a big difference for the wellness of those in lock up. I want to extend a big heartfelt thanks to all who’ve written and supported me the past five months, as three of those were spent confined to the indoors. Utilize your “freedom” to keep up the fight, let’s work towards a future where jails and prisons are abolished.

Though I disdain pacifying tools and techniques utilized by these institutions, such as television, unless all prisons and jails burn down tomorrow, we need to advocate for jails to be required to offer outdoor time to all inmates (it’s already mandated in prisons) and also offer a more diverse and healthy selection of foods. Ex inmate congrats on your release! Eric Mc David suffered pericardins from being denied his request for vegan food (thus his denying of the “stock” food) and folks such as my old cellmate developed a diagnosed thyroid disorder from a vitamin D deficiency, stemming from a lack of adequate outdoor exposure to the sun. WTF?

As I never want to see any of my fellow comrades incarcerated and and we want to strive to be as effective as possible, not just symbolic, we need to be more creative than the average “lock down.” What the rad cats in the Mattiole forest had going on last summer in the coastal “Nor Cal” bioregion was rad as fuck and we could all learn something from it.

A lot of us have also left the full time traditional workforce long ago to make a better and more productive use of our skills, time, happiness, thus are constantly diabolically opposed to many counselors, lawyers and programs that aim to “get us back on our feet.” Utilizing our personal agency as individuals-and as a collective to resist financial and “work” entrapment putting a damper on our greater resistance efforts is always something to improve upon as well.

Getting back to issues regarding “Corrections” institutions, it should be noted that while communication and media exposure are monitored and often censored, correspondence between myself and other inmates in regards to the Uprisings in Baltimore, oil spill around Santa Barbara and blockade of the Port of Seattle have been stifled, if not shut down completely by the prison systems. I’ve received five “return to sender” letters, three from Wisconsin, one from Texas and one from an Oregonian correctional institution stating that the content of of letters was “not” approved inmate to inmate communication or “potentially elicits illegal activity or violence.” It’s clear that “authorities” prefer inmates to remain in the dark and not organize those or any issues. All of my correspondence that was denied delivery thus far, happened to be addressed to black prisoners whom I will continue to attempt to correspond with. If people do no understand why we should be organized/raging against the police and furthermore do not understand why the “Black Lives Matter” campaign has gained so much momentum, they serve as reminder about how much decolonization there is yet to be done and how many privileged ideas there is left to smash.

I have a new found respect for anyone who has attempted to organize themselves or other inmates, as the stakes are high-your freedom and aspects of it. Various forms of repression can be bestowed upon you, i.e. solitary confinement, loss of various “privileges” communication declination, and sometimes people on the outside cannot find out easily. My outdoor privileges were revoked for three weeks just for verbally defending my cell mate.

At any rate I could go on and on, so instead I will make a list of messages, points, and preferences I want to drive home in no particular order.

You don’t have to travel to find something to fight for or against. Evil roads, evil farms, industrial projects and spaces to defend or re wild exist in your respective bio region.

Foraging (urban and wild) permaculture and re wilding NOT farming of any kind or totalitarianism over the land.

Defenders of bio regions NOT Activists.

Comrades and Accomplices NOT “allies”

Struggles NOT Movements

Effectiveness over Symbolism

Multiple insurrections NOT singular revolutions

Don’t trust liberals as far as you can throw them; I am incarcerated partially because due to the misguided and self important actions inadvertently made by liberal snitches and I want to share this because I want people to learn from my experience.

All of our struggles are connected but it doesn’t always make sense to combine them; diversity and diverse execution of tactics should be recognized and respected.

“Elders” are folks who have earned the title, not all advice is wise advice and everyone is subject to critique.

Tell the IWW that industry, regardless of whether it’s owned and operated by a ‘liberated” work force or not, only feeds further oppression of the land and people and perpetuates destructive consumer culture…In the meantime “general strikes” can still be very effective but we should be working towards exchanging the concept of work with “productive play” and abolishing industry altogether.

Call out sexual assault, sexual harassment and all forms of oppression with more confidence. Some of the conduct that transpired at the original Penokee Harvest Camp should have been called out sooner. Though it can be painful speaking up always opens up opportunities to create safer spaces sooner than later.

There’s a proposal circulating to form a more cohesive “national” forest/ecological defense network based on non compromising bio centric ideals…I think it’s a rad idea and I hope it gets discussed and explored at the 2015 EF Rondy.

Lastly, if anyone’s interested, some comrades and myself have been working on- a multi tiered fundraiser for some stellar projects and my legal fees that breaks down like this:

40% for my legal fees and some envelopes for correspondence

40% for the Womyn Warrior Project we’ve been working on which entails utilizing resources for forest/ecological defense in the northwest Great Lakes bio region.

Finish the “The Ethnobotany of the Penokee Hills” zine and host a “womyn” oriented (queer and trans inclusive) rad gathering in the spring in the northwest Great Lakes bio region (time and local TBA).

10% for production and distribution of Earth First Journal.

10% to the non religious house less shelter project in Ashland Wisconsin.

Please see for more info.

As of June 30 I am the only female bodied inmate at the Iron County jail I also still have an appeal pending, but my alleged bail jumping for supposedly being on “GTAC” land while on bond was recently dropped to a trespassing forfeiture and fine, less than a misdemeanor, with an additional 100 hours of community service tacked on to my current sentence.

Thanks so, so, so, so, so, so, much for being supportive of me and continuing the struggle for the wild.

Love, Rage and Wildness

My sentence to nine months in jail in conjunction with a withheld felony sentence  equating to 15 years in prison if I “step out of line” in the eyes of the “state”, was harsh and a classist attack on my beliefs and lifestyle. Judge Fox strives to kill my spirit by burying me in a dying urban hole and desires that I refrain from involvement in the anti-resource extraction struggle; I refuse to be “killed,” and I refuse the idea of coerced complacency.

The “lifestyle enforcement” aspect of my five year probation mandate (post-jail time) with full-time employment stipulation, is culturist, and out-of-touch with today’s employment landscape. Innumerable individuals work seasonal jobs for life in a responsible manner, thus Judge Fox’s ruling is based on the disappearing myth of the white American Dream that supports and enforces a destructive capitalist regime. In conjunction, Judge Fox exploited my sentencing hearing to serve as a symbolic trial for my identity as an anarchist, my appearance, and my ongoing affiliation with indigenous communities, extending to my adamant stance against industrial resource extraction- this is unacceptable, yet predictable. The judge seemingly desires to stifle dissent from all things wild and free, and may as well have based his sentence off a hypothetical book in progress entitled, “White Pride and Prejudice,” as the words fell from his mouth in a narrow, out-dated, and white-male privileged world perspective, and does not support or embrace hunting, fishing, or gathering.

Though I am not indigenous and have never claimed to be, I am grateful and touched to have been welcomed into some of those communities, and maintain that G-TAC and their pro-mine affiliates are waging extreme racist resource colonialism on the land and connected peoples and creatures with the proposed Penokee Mine, potentially the largest iron-mine world-wide, as it would negatively affect front-line indigenous communities of the northwoods bioregion, in conjunction with their traditional ways.

Though I wish no harm on Stacey Saari, a geologist hired on G-TAC’s dollar, it saddens me that she continues to despise the fiber of my being, and continues to support industrial resource extraction that in turn supports death to the poorest of peoples in rural/wilderness landscapes. The cliché’ of “just doing your job” is no excuse to participate in colonial violence via corporate resource extraction.

Exploitation of the land by rich corporate entities continues to persist whilst perpetuating persecution of dissent to such negative acts across the globe, so resistance to these destructive activities must continue to proliferate world-wide. Various incarnations of creative resistance must be embraced to succeed in the struggle against the ongoing violence against our only home, Earth.

Consequently, colonization is everywhere, so decolonization must happen everywhere.

We must “know our rights,” and practice good security culture if we are to support our comrades, and succeed in struggle.

It will do us all good to prioritize organizing as communities and individuals that value consensus and the destruction of exclusionary hierarchies, holding ourselves accountable to our own standards.

It is also important to remember who are allies are, as well as who the real enemies are… a Supreme Court recently ruled that it is NOT a police officer’s job to “protect and serve,” only to uphold the law… the law is written by the predominantly white, colonized, elite 1% ruling class, and that is who the “law” protects- not you, not the land, not people of the LGBTQ community, female-bodied folks, or minorities of any kind. Thus, the law protects G-TAC and their affiliates, and police remain the first line of enforcement against community resistance.

We must negate state repression by protecting ourselves and land-bases therein; we must not give our people up, and recognize that to be in solidarity with one another is more akin to the idea of “harmony” than “unity”. Harmony implies that we can all do different things within the same song, and still find conclusion together.

We must let go of the liberal idea and notion of “hope”; hope is a passive wish; I would rather assert myself and strive toward self determination, leaving fascist hands and ideals behind.

The message must be sent that public dissent will NOT be stifled, as we are living in the 11th hour, the seventh fire, the last grab for fossil-fuel resources… We will not live in the wake of corporate destruction and greed… the anti-police brutality struggles that originated in Ferguson demonstrate inspiring community organizing and resistance we can all learn from, in conjunction with the indigenous people’s struggles at the Unis’tot’en Camp 1,000 kilometers north of modern day “British Columbia”- they never ceded their lands to the Canadian government and kicked out large-scale resource extractors by building a traditional village in the way of a pipeline… five years strong and steady.

In closing, direct action is important, and we must all continue to organize creatively;  stay aware of the harms and dangers that surveillance and social media can bring. The internet is both a blessing and a curse; spend less time obsessing over government conspiracies, be safe, and organize around tangible issues that are pertinent to your communities.
In addition, for those who are interested in following the law to the tee until they die, you are a hypocrite, and you are not free; slavery was once legal, electro-shock therapy was once legal, and the nature of the proposed Penokee Mine was once illegal… be on the side of loving common-sense, as tough love takes many forms, not the side of money and fascism.

Ultimately, the Penokee Mine will never be built as it is genocide upon stolen Ojibwe land, its’ indigenous peoples and creatures, and their traditional ways. We should continue to use the land as if it does not belong to RGGS, leased to G-TAC, as it does not belong to them. Treaties aside, if we kill the land, we kill ourselves.

You’ve heard the rumors…

Federal judge: Great Lakes wolves return to endangered list

By John Flesher, Associated Press 10:30 a.m. EST December 23, 2014

Unless it’s overturned, the decision will ban further wolf hunting and trapping in Michigan and two other states.

A federal judge on Friday threw out an Obama administration decision to remove the gray wolf population in the western Great Lakes region from the endangered species list — a decision that will ban further wolf hunting and trapping in Michigan.

The order — which also affects Minnesota and Wisconsin — protects a wolf population that is estimated at around 3,700. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service dropped federal protections from those wolves in 2012 and handed over management to the states.

U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell in Washington, D.C., ruled Friday the removal was “arbitrary and capricious” and violated the federal Endangered Species Act.

Unless overturned, her decision will block the states from scheduling additional hunting and trapping seasons for the predators. All three have had at least one hunting season since protections were lifted, while Minnesota and Wisconsin also have allowed trapping.

The nonprofit Keep Michigan Wolves Protected submitted more than 250,000 signatures to put a wolf-hunt proposal on the ballot, then nearly 200,000 signatures for a second proposal after the state Legislature and Gov. Rick Snyder enacted a law in May 2013 to override the first petition. But a pro-hunt group, Citizens for Professional Wildlife Management, made up of dozens of Michigan hunting organizations, gathered more than 374,000 signatures for its proposal affirming the state’s ability to manage game species for hunting.

In November, Michigan voters rejected two proposals that would have affirmed the appointed state Natural Resources Commission’s ability to name wolves and other animals as game eligible for hunting.

“The wolves needed to go back under federal protection,” said Jill Fritz, Michigan director of the Humane Society of the United States. “The courts recognized the basis of the delisting was flawed.”

Fritz added there are roughly 630 gray wolves in Michigan currently, though the population has decreased slightly since the animal was delisted. She said the drop in population could also be attributed to colder winter temperatures affecting their food supply.

More than 1,500 Great Lakes wolves have been killed since federal protections were removed, said Jonathan Lovvorn, senior vice president of the Humane Society of the United States, which filed a lawsuit that prompted Howell’s ruling.

“We are pleased that the court has recognized that the basis for the delisting decision was flawed, and would stop wolf recovery in its tracks,” Lovvorn said.


Want to hunt Michigan wolves? You’ll have to wait until at least 2015

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Gavin Shire said the agency was disappointed and would confer with the U.S. Department of Justice and the states about whether to appeal.

“The science clearly shows that wolves are recovered in the Great Lakes region, and we believe the Great Lakes states have clearly demonstrated their ability to effectively manage their wolf populations,” Shire said. “This is a significant step backward.”

Wolf advocates applauded the ruling Friday.

“We filed the lawsuit to relist the Great Lakes population of wolves,” said Fritz. “It was based on the assertion that the Great Lakes states had proven they could not responsibly manage wolves when they were delisted in January 2012.”

Fritz said she’s unsure whether there will be an appeal, though she thinks the claims that would substantiate such an appeal, like claiming that wolves are attacking livestock, would be unfounded.

Jodi Habush Sinykin, an attorney for Midwest Environmental Advocates, which supports science-based wildlife management, said the decision should serve as a clear signal of caution to people who would destroy the nation’s wolves.

Minnesota Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr said agency attorneys will study the ruling before determining its effect on state wolf policy.

“On face value we’re very surprised. We didn’t even know it was coming to a conclusion here,” Landwehr said. “It’s an unusual turn of events.”

Nancy Warren, a member of the National Wolfwatcher Coalition and a U.P. resident, said Michigan’s maximum penalty for killing an animal protected under the federal Endangered Species Act is 90 days in jail, a fine up to $1,000, or both.

If the offense is taken to a federal court, it is punishable by a fine of up to $100,000, one year in jail, or both. In her experience, Warren said, most of these cases stay at the state level and are flexible in penalties.

“The U.S. federal government generally does not get involved unless if the state fails to act,” Warren said.

Warren said that her only hope now is that wolves continue to be on the endangered species list, and the Michigan DNR begins to provide education on wolf preservation.

“Wolves will self-regulate themselves,” Warren said. “All they need is for us to stop shooting them. Wolves that we have will now be allowed to be wolves.”

Wet’suwet’en Peoples (Yinka Dini – People of this Earth)

Unis’tot’en of the Wet’suwet’en

*This article is a courtesy of the Unis’tot’en official webpage; we are spreading the info and love!

fredaThe Unis’tot’en (C’ihlts’ehkhyu / Big Frog Clan) are the original Wet’suwet’enYintah Wewat Zenli distinct to the lands of the Wet’suwet’en. Over time in Wet’suwet’en History, the other clans developed and were included throughout Wet’suwet’en Territories. The Unis’tot’en are known as the toughest of the Wet’suwet’en as their territories were not only abundant, but the terrain was known to be very treacherous. The Unis’tot’en recent history includes taking action to protect their lands from Lions Gate Metals at their Tacetsohlhen Bin Yintah, and building a cabin and resistance camp at Talbits Kwah at Gosnell Creek and Wedzin Kwah (Morice River which is a tributary to the Skeena and Bulkley River) from seven proposed pipelines from Tar Sands Gigaproject and LNG from the Horn River Basin Fracturing Projects in the Peace River Region

Likhts’amisyu Clan of the Wet’suwet’en

lcLaksamashyuThe Likhts’amisyu (Firewood Clan) are made up of people who have ancient roots which originate in the ancient Gitxsan village of Temlahamidt. They have developed strong relationships with many of the Wet’suwet’en Clans and neighboring tribes. They carefully managed a Fireweed travel and trade corridor which enriched people from the Nat’ot’en territories, through to the Wet’suwet’en territories, into the heart of Gitxsan territories and up into Nisga’a territories. Their territories in Wet’suwet’en country are also threatened by development. For example, the Bard Ventures Mining Exploration site near Houston BC threatens an ancient battle/burial ground of the Wet’suwet’en and their southern neighbors the Tsilhc’ot’en. Also, there is the Huckleberry Mine which is located at the Easternmost side of the Sibola Range near the devastated watershed at Ootsa Lake which was flooded by the Kemano Hydro Electric Project. The proposed Petroleum Pipeline projects threaten some of the most treacherous and unstable terrain in Wet’suwet’en territories along the Clore River Watershed.

Grassroots Wet’suwet’en

The Grassroots Wet’suwet’en do not operate from a boardroom or from a societies act, they walk and breathe their laws with a powerful and unbreakable marriage to the land. The Grassroots peoples of the Wet’suwet’en are healers, warriors, elders, hunters, fisherpeople, knowledge keepers, and are culturally driven. The Grassroots peoples have a great potential to reverse impacts from colonization and eradicate the resultant social and spiritual poverty by continuing to show the next generations to walk with their laws.

October 24, 2014 12:00 am  • 

MADISON — Hunters are killing Wisconsin wolves at a dizzying rate, pushing another season toward an early end.

The season began Oct. 15 and is slated to last until Feb. 28 or until hunters reach a 150-animal statewide kill limit. As of Thursday morning, just eight days into the season, hunters had killed 103 animals, nearly 70 percent of the limit. State wildlife officials have closed four of the six wolf-hunting zones where hunters were quickly approaching zone-specific harvest limits or had reached or exceeded them.

Dave MacFarland, a large carnivore specialist for the Department of Natural Resources, said hunters didn’t reach the 70 percent mark last year until two weeks into the season. The kill limit was higher, at 251 animals, but the DNR issued about 1,000 more tags than this year. Hunters needed 34 days to reach the 70 percent mark in the inaugural season of 2012, when the quota was 116 animals and 1,160 tags were issued.

MacFarland attributed this year’s fast pace to more hunters heading into the woods early in the hopes of bagging a wolf before their zone closes. More hunters are using traps, perhaps the most efficient means of hunting wolves, he added. Of all the wolves killed so far this year, 85 percent were trapped, compared with 70 percent in 2013 and 52 percent in 2012, he said.

He also noted that the DNR issues 10 tags for every wolf counted in the quota, putting more hunters on the landscape than for other species. For example, the agency authorized 1,500 wolf tags this year compared with about 10,000 tags for 4,700 bears, a ratio of almost two hunters per bear, he said.

The 2012 and 2013 seasons each ended Dec. 23, two months ahead of the February stop date. MacFarland said he wasn’t sure when this season might end.

Hunters were still 32 animals shy of the quota in Zone 3, a corner of northwestern Wisconsin, and 28 wolves short of the limit in Zone 6, which encompasses most of southern two-thirds of the state.

MacFarland said the kill rate is typically slower in that area but DNR officials are watching for signs that they may have to shut the hunt down early to compensate for the over-quota numbers elsewhere.

“It’s definitely going quick,” he said. “We’ll have to wait and see if that trend continues. It’s going to depend on how much people are motivated to get out in the two remaining units.”

Stop the Wisconsin Wolf Hunt, Oct. 15th- Feb. 28th, 2014.

Grey Wolves, Canis lupus, are a keystone predator in our forest communities that help regulate deer herds, & were only recently delisted from federal endangered status less than two years ago. With approx.  only 800 wolves in WI, one of the few states left of their once nation-wide range, the WDNR aims to harvest 150; WE aim for zero. Ojibwe lore tells us whatever happens to ma’iingan, happens to Anishanabe, the great lakes indigenous peoples. Stand in solidarity with the wolf, ma’iingan, & several tribes who have taken a stance against the Wolf Hunt such as Bad River, Red Cliff, Lac Courte Oreilles, Lac du Flambeau, & Menominee. There are several packs that run the Penokee Range; these and all wolves deserve safe havens.    


                                             Support the campaign to protect wolves; search, “Yellowstone Wolf Patrol” at  2014 Wolf Hunt Regulations:


There will also be a presentation TUESDAY OCT. 21st, at 7:30 pm in Ashland at the Northland College Ponzio Student Ctr. in regards to stopping the wolf hunt (Oct. 15th-Feb.28th, 2014). The event is given by the “Great Lakes Wolf Protectors,” featuring local indigenous perspective on the hunt and Ojibwe wolf lore, as well as featured presentation from animal rights/liberation activist Rod Coronado. Donations toward the campaign for camping and documenting supplies, in conjunction with covering gas costs are greatly appreciated, but the event is more or less free!


Statement from Krow, AKA “Katie Kloth”; Post-settlement hearing press release

Hurley, WI. Iron Cty. Court House, Taconite St.

Sept. 21st, 2014

On Friday September 19th 2014, at the Iron County court house on Taconite St. Krow aka “Katie Kloth” made a non-cooperating plea of “no contest” to two charges with great hesitation and a heavy heart. The charges include, robbery with use of force a class e felony, and party to a crime criminal property damage, a class a misdemeanor. Two other property damage charges were dropped but can still be considered in Krow’s future sentencing.

A “no contest” plea states that you are choosing to not fight the charges but are also not pleading guilty and reserve the right to retract your plea. Krow is confident that the struggle to protect the water and land bases of and connected to the Penokee Hills will continue. Krow holds a disdain for “state coerced cooperation” and believes that no other anti-mine individuals deserve to suffer under the hand of the generalities of unjust law in our “criminal injustice system”.

Gogebic Taconite LLC. and their affiliates still remain unencumbered by the law though G-TAC president Bill Williams has been indicted for crimes against the environment in Spain, as well as being accused by a Bad River Tribal member of forcibly removing a phone from their arms whilst simultaneously injuring them.

As usual, money, political power, and corporate interest to extract resources for the capitalist regime still reign supreme, and have unfairly stacked the cards against Krow in Iron County. Krow is confident that the will of the people and the creatures of the land to stop the proposed iron mine will prevail.

G-Tac believes they will be unimpeded in their efforts to avoid legal penalties and influence the Iron County district attorney to give citizens at risk from deadly mining activities felonies, whilst G-TAC arms unlicensed, illegal para-military to patrol the Penokee Hills before their intended state supported destruction by G-Tac or another purchasing body. They are wrong.

Mining act I will be repealed, Governor Scott Walker ousted from office, and the will and actions and love of the people to protect their land and homes will prevail.

We must stand in solidarity with each other, develop the communities we want to be a part of, and collectively reject state coerced informing and negate state repression whenever possible. Our own community accountability is the only thing which can protect us and enable our ability to continue to organize. We can only move forward with positive intention to continue our fight in the struggle against resource extraction.

to continue to follow and support this case and future organizing efforts see for more information.
