Support Swamp Defender Brittany!

On May 29th, one of the Barley Barber 17, Brittany, was sentenced to
30 days in Martin County Jail. She plead no-contest to three charges.
Back in January, Brittany bravely defied law enforcement officers as
well as Florida Power & Light security guards by crossing into Barley
Barber Swamp through a water way that is both waters of the State and
waters of the U.S. Brittany carried out a swamp occupation attempting
to protect and call attention to the old growth cypress swamp with
1000 year old cypress trees. Barley Barber is a gem, a primeval
landscape, and one of the only old-growth cypress forests left in the
Southeast Coast. FPL's Martin Power Plant, the largest fossil fuel
power plant in the U.S. is pulling water from below the forest causing
soil subsidence and the eventual collapse of the entire regional
ecosystem (not too mention the air pollution and climate change).

Please support Barley Barber Swamp, Brittany, and eco-defense by
writing to her at the following address. She could also use lots of
books! Also, consider donating to Everglades Earth First! to help with
legal funds! Check out our paypal link on the home page.
