Biscuit Fire Logging Protestors Block Downtown Street
March 30, 2005
Opponents of the Biscuit timber sales in southwest Oregon staged an unusual protest in Portland Wednesday.
A demonstrator suspended himself on a tripod in the middle of Second Avenue and read from the Dr. Seuss book, The Lorax, while dozens of police officers watched and directed traffic.
It took more than an hour for police to get him down.
