"The emotions are high amongst the people setting up this new blockade
site and have many women, youth, men & one elder standing their ground
against the logging trucks. They will not allow anymore logging in their
traditional territory."

The youth of Grassy Narrows Ontario, acting without formal leadership,
have initiated a second blockade to prevent the logging of First Nations
traditional territory. Subsequently, the people of Grassy Narrows,
including teachers and students from the local school, have come out to
help stop the cutting.

The second blockade comes as clearcutting has resumed in the Stewart Lake
area and just weeks before an Youth Environmental Gathering at the Slant
Lake blockade site that will terminate in a Treaty #3-wide blockade of all
forest operations on Native land. The first permanent blockade at Grassy
has been effectively preventing logging trucks from accessing a logging
route near Slant Lake since December 3, 2002.

Abitibi Consolidated Inc. and local contractor, Ambs Forest Products, are
deciding what to do this week.
