Teal Cedar Products asks for one-year injunction extension at Fairy Creek
Teal Cedar Products appeared in court on Tuesday, Sept. 14, to apply for a one-year extension of an injunction against the ongoing old-growth logging protests in Fairy Creek, B.C.
According to The Vancouver Sun, a lawyer for the company, Dean Dalke, told a B.C. Supreme Court judge that the protests against logging are becoming more sophisticated and organized, and there will be “anarchy” if the extension is not granted.
Since May, when the RCMP began enforcing the injunction against blockades in the area, almost 1,000 people have been arrested.
Dalke said protestors have put spikes in raids, chained themselves to gates, dug themselves into trenches or attached themselves to trees to try to prevent the police from enforcing the injunction.
