Link to Memorial Info for Robert Bryan

Apologies for those who are receiving this notice a bit late.

Today, Oct 19, 2002, at 4PM there is a memorial for Earth First! tree sitter Robert Bryan, otherwise known as Naya. He fell from a tree-sit in Ramsey Gulch in Corralitios. I believe this was on Oct 8th. He died on the way to the hospital in San Jose. Earth First! has worked very hard to denfend our environment. While not every member of the community can take time to do a tree sit, we do have time to show our support in other ways and we will be there. The memorial will be at Frederick St. park , which is two blocks south of Broadway on Frederick St. in SC. If you are going east on Broadway, go all the way to the end and turn right. Bring some drums and some food. Earth First! Santa Cruz meets every Tuesday at 7PM at the building closest to Ocean St. at the Resource Center for Non-Violence at 515 Broadway in Santa Cruz.

Ramsey Gulch tree-sit

Hi there, my name is Evan Jaundzems and I am a current UCSC student. I've just lived in Santa Cruz for a couple months, and up till now have been very busy with my classes, but now I'm free enough to look around and I want to get involved. I just finished reading Julias book, and found a lot I identify with. I've climbed trees almost since I can remember, have lived in several trees, have experience building non-tree harming platforms, and am very interested in getting active around here.
I would love to help you with sitting in trees, and if it's okay, I will. I would also like to help with other things. I'll try to make it to your next meeting tomorrow.
I'm in school since I realize how important it is to become educated, and I'm loving it, but at the same time I know there's more I could be doing outside of school in terms of issues that are important to me. I've worked for a man who has made his living off of building tree houses, I know how to do a prussic, and I have much experience climbing trees. While the support and external things are important, and I'd like to try and help on that front, I'd more prefer to help with the actual sit. I'm also very sorry to learn of Nayas fall.
