Joan Baez Serenades Treetop Protesters
   
Los Angeles Staff and Wire Reports

Folk singer Joan Baez delivered a surprise serenade to two activists who have spent months perched in redwoods owned by Pacific Lumber Co. near of Eureka.

Baez was in the area for shows at Humboldt State University in Arcata. "What's up? Air a little thin up there?" Baez shouted to the protesters, who were more than 150 feet above the ground. She then began singing, "Ain't going to let nobody push me around / Gonna build a brand new world."

The activists are protesting Pacific Lumber's plans to harvest timber in the area.
