A rally has been held by Earth Research Protection Association in order to free Jonathan Stewart who is allegedly being illegally detained by a federal officer.

Jonathan Stewart was allegedly detained for releasing information and for being on the scene of the Witch Rock fire without authorization, which occurred early Friday morning, according to Logan Canyon ranger Sarah Wheeler. 

“The forest service did not detain Jon Stewart,” Wheeler said. “I believe it was the Logan Police at this time.”

Lt. Brad Franke of LPD said he had no record of Jonathan Stewart or a detainment.

“The U.S. government hates Mother Earth,” said Whispering Spring, an ERPA leader said. “That’s why they are detaining Jon Stewart. Free Jon Stewart!”
