Today at our GA we made some great signs for the May Day “Dying for a Living Wage” rally with members of La Raza Unida party. Hope to see you there Wednesday May 1st at 5pm at Central & San Pedro.
We also debriefed the success of our 2nd “Medicine for the People” event, and were pleased that so many practitioners were happy to be there and want to do it again, and that so many people (most without health care) got treatments and want us to organize it more than annually.
Discussed the campaign to stop the opening of a new uranium mine at Mt. Taylor and stop uranium mining in the Grand Canyon–a campaign organized by MASE, Havasupai and Dine activists.
This link to indigenous media makes it easy to send your comment opposing the mine: http://www.indigenousaction.org/protect-holy-mt-taylor
LET’S TRY TO GET 100 BURQUENOS TO CALL/EMAIL THE FOREST SERVICE OPPOSING URANIUM MINING BEFORE MAY 14!
One way we can help here in Albuquerque: it is the Abq Forest Service office on Osuna that is taking public comment until May 14th about whether they should allow a new uranium mine at Mt Taylor. We have planned a protest at their office so they can hear our opposition:
FRIDAY MAY 10TH AT 4PM at the Forest Service 2113 Osuna NE (west of Jefferson)
We have a local opportunity to really support this four corners movement to stop uranium mining! Please help us link with the many organizations who are opposed to uranium mining. We will stage another protest at the mining company’s headquarters in Santa Fe.
The protest May 10th is part of a long term campaign that we have been discussing for our summer activities.
