A Crowdfunding site for eco-defense prisoner , Krow!



Thank you for supporting Krow! This Eco-Warrior has been in custody in the Iron County WI Jail since early February 2015 for standing up to Goegebic Taconite which was trying to level the ancient Penokee hills to creat the world’s largest taconite mine. While the mine has been stopped due to immense public pressure and the overwhelming scientific evidence supporting environmentalist and Native activist’s claims about the pristine nature of the surrounding wetlands, Krow still is in great need of support. Between the lawyer legal fees and fines Krow is looking at a pretty hefty bill to pay raking close to nine grand.

Krow created a “Rad Enviro Fund” below which breaks down the percentage of your donation here. If you wish to donate just to Krow’s legal fees be sure to write that down.

1.) 40% for my (Katie Kloth) legal fees (& some envelopes for correspondence and phone calls)

2.) 40% for the womyn warrior project, which entails: A. Utilizes ‘resources’ for forest/ecological defense in the Northwest Great Lakes Bioregion (NWGLB) Utilize finds to procurement mycellium for mycorediatory direct action projects in NWGLB. Finish “The ethnobotany of (the) Penokee Hills” zine/book nd host a womyn-oriented (queer and trans inclusive) rad gathering and skills shre in the spring of 2016 in the NWGLB (Time and Location TBA)

3.) 10% to the production of EarthFirst! Journal

4.) 10% to the non-religious house-less shelter project in Ashland, WI
