THANK YOU from Nutty! “As fern begins her time above this road, I’m thinking back over the last 56 days. I continue to be blown away by the support so many have given to this action.
Thank you. Thank you all.
Thank you to everyone who rallied way back on March 28th, and to everyone who gathered on May 20th to denounce the USFS's actions.
Thank you for all the yelling across the closure and all the steep hikes.
Thank you to everyone who came from nearby lands threatened or already ravaged by this pipeline, and thank you to everyone who made the journey or reached out from hundreds or thousands of miles away.
Thank you to my friends who lived beside me for weeks in the woods, and to all who dedicated days and weeks at the support camp without ever having met me before I climbed up a monopod.
Thank you to everyone who typed up my messy handwriting so my messages could go out to you all.
Thank you to the four-year-old who shouted, incredibly loudly, “stay strong!” from across the police tape - I think I’ll always remember that one.
I know to them, that words will not matter, that my gratitude is something I cannot adequately express. But thank you to the trees and plants and shrubs and sun and birds and insects and rainstorms and this whole breathtaking, life-giving mountain. I will keep fighting for you.
Thank you all for the words and prayers and songs and music. You have all shown me again and again how much this struggle matters to so many. I can't stay up here forever, but together we can keep finding ways to hold onto this fire.
I can only expect things to get harder. But as I look back over eight weeks of resistance here, three months on this mountain, so many more of organizing and preparation, I keep remembering how when I started this, I had no ideas that lasting this long was possible. That this entire experience, with all its difficultly and pain and learning and joy, was even in the realm of possibilities.
I wonder, as resistance continues unabated into spring, what possibilities are germinating even now. -Nutty”
