Six people, including a Bend woman, were arrested Monday in a logging demonstration at the Oregon capitol.

 

Two of the demonstrators climbed flagpoles and attached homemade banners protesting plans to increase logging on state land.  The others were arrested more than three hours after they chained themselves together in the offices of Secretary of State Kate Brown and State Treasurer Ted Wheeler.  Oregon State Police said six people were booked at the Marion County Jail, cited and released, including Anna Armstrong, 19, of Bend. 

 

They were cited to appear at a later date in Marion County Circuit Court on charges of second-degree criminal trespass, first-degree disorderly conduct and first-degree criminal mischief.  The timber industry has said the plan will create new jobs and boost school funding, but conservation groups say it would harm fish and wildlife.
