Hofmann Forest [1]For those interested in the growing movement to fight back against the incredibly troubling decision by N. C. State to sell-off 79,000 acres forest that it has owned almost 80 years [2], there will be a protest this Friday on the N.C. State campus in the Brickyard from noon to 2:00 p.m.

As the organizers have described it:

“This is your chance to help save a 79,000 acre forest that has been owned for the benefit of NCSU for 80 years. The University has just signed a contract to sell Hofmann to an Illinois corn farmer, who has big plans for destroy the forest to grow food for pigs (we’re not making this up!).”

Protesters have also organized a Facebook page and petition that can be accessed by clicking here [3].
