2005 in a Mission District Alley in San Francisco.
It was performed in response to the anti-abortion march that took place in

was the fourth major demonstration against the Biscuit Logging Plan since
logging began within old growth reserves
April 7th 2005. Eighteen women on the bridge and Becky White, hanging off
the bridge beneath the women sat blocking
logging trucks for nearly 7 hours. 3 additional women formed a separate
blockade a few miles up the road. Twenty-two
women were arrested. A new base camp has been set up on the Illinois River
Road a few miles from Selma Oregon. For more info go to
