More info here. Love it.
This kind of thing brings back really fond memories for me. I have to say that when you're involved in this kind of activist work, you begin to wonder which is stronger: your dedication to the cause or your addiction to the adrenaline rush you get when participating in this kind of stunt. Food for thought.
Tegan,I can totally relate to this. And this is a topic that doesn't seem to provoke much conversation in activist circles. But there really is nothing like the adrenaline rush involved in climbing a crane to hang a banner for the whole city to see (mine was a Rainforest Action Network one) while wondering if/when you'll be arrested for it. Which is how I imagine these climbers experienced it. Oh wait, natural childbirth actually does give you a bigger adrenaline rush. But besides that, nothing compares.
