    Tlingit Elder Wanda Culp and Joshua Wright - The Biggest Threat to the Alaskan Rainforest This Century

    Tlingit Elder Wanda Culp and Joshua Wright - The Biggest Threat to the Alaskan Rainforest This Century

    The Tongass Rainforest in Southeast Alaska is the last great expanse of temperate old growth forest left in the United States, and it has been partially protected since the "Roadless Rule" halted most logging there in 2001. 
    Now, the "biggest threat to the west coast rainforest this century" is here: Bill S.1889/H.R. 4748, which would permanently privatize 115,200 acres (including 60,000 acres of old-growth) of Tongass National Forest into the hands of Sealaska Corporation — which has already logged massive swathes of the region.
    This conversation with Tlingit elder and forest defender Wanda Culp and filmmaker and activist Joshua Wright — who has been on the show before to discuss Fairy Creek — dives into "indigi-washing," one of the divide and conquer strategies used defeat public opposition to the destruction of the land.
    Wanda and Joshua are looking for allies: organizations and individuals willing to fight this project and defend the Tongass.

    Water Protector and Dakota Access Pipeline DAPL Saboteur Jessica Reznicek

    Water Protector and Dakota Access Pipeline DAPL Saboteur Jessica Reznicek

    Jessica Reznicek is a 40-year-old land and water defender who has worked with and lived in the Des Moines Catholic Worker Community. After being charged with a "terrorism enhancement," she was sentenced to 8 years in 2021 for taking action to protect the water along the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) route by disabling construction machinery during the Standing Rock uprising. 
    No one was injured by Jessica and her fellow Catholic Worker’s actions, and the land was protected from the flow of oil for an additional six months.
    On this episode, we share an update on her legal case, and encourage our listeners to support her team and consider writing to her. More information can be found at http://supportjessicareznicek.com/.
    The Green Flame is honored to rebroadcast our interview with Jessica in the second part of this show. We conducted an interview with Jessica and Ruby Montoya on July 26th, 2017 — after they had admitted publicly to sabotaging the pipeline but before they had been arrested or charged with these crimes.
    The two activists set fire to heavy machinery and used blow torches to damage the oil pipeline and valves in an effort to decisively halt the project. While the DAPL was ultimately finished, their actions singlehandedly delayed construction for weeks or months.

No more cake!

This is a necessary, often insightful, and always interesting podcast. It’s ecological critique of civilization is perhaps the most significant movement in human consciousness since Marx. I have been listening to episodes haphazardly, and my favorites so far include: 10. Radical Feminism, 24. Esther Figueroa, 25. Planet of the Humans, and 40. Sergio Alexander Kochergin. There are some speakers on the podcast whose views I do not entirely agree with or would qualify; for example, I do not think rivers are persons. However, the range of views expressed is stimulating. Some suggestions for furthering the cause through this outlet would be: 1) more debate on debatable points and 2) perhaps some humor. Keep up the good work Max and Jennifer!
