I’ve never been quite sure what to make of this video. I first saw it (or one just like it) years ago. It is supposed to be some sort of mourning ceremony held by “exteme tree huggers” around the bole of an old-growth tree scheduled for harvesting.
If it is legitimate, then it shows that a fair number of individuals regard inanimate objects as having “rights” about like ours. I supposed I shouldn’t be suprised, PETA has always regarded rats and chickens as equal to humans. The video is histrionic in the extreme, but I don’t get the sense it is scripted or acted.
