Last week peace vigils occurred across the country to commemorate Sept. 11. In New York City thousands gathered in Washington Square Park. Among them was Julia Butterfly Hill.

The 28-year-old activist is best known for her two-year tree-sit in Luna, a giant redwood tree in Humbolt County, California. She was protesting the logging practices of Pacific Lumber Company.

Two months ago environmental activist Hill made international headlines when she was deported from Ecuador for protesting an oil pipeline that would penetrate a virgin Andean “cloud forest.”

The 300-mile oil pipeline has targeted by the environmental activists. It will transport petroleum from the Ecuadorian Amazon across the Andes to the Pacific coast for refining and export.

Today we will continue our interview with Julia recorded last week at our Firehouse Studio as she discusses her philosophy of resistance.

Guest:

  • Julia Butterfly Hill, activist for the world’s forest and the communities they protect. She is author of 'The Legacy of Luna: the Story of a Tree, a Woman, and the Struggle to Save the Redwoods' and 'One Makes the Difference.'
