Yesterday’s Tucson Rally started a string of events in February to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Oak Flat occupation. A big group turned out to share dinner and hear Apache Stronghold leader Wendsler Nosie Sr. speak about progress of the effort to protect the sacred site. Musician Loren Victor provided entertainment for a crowd of about 100. Click here to see photos and videos of the evening’s program.
Seattle walkers are excited and inspired by the Tucson kick-off. The event is spreading via social media, and a broad base of supporters from across the Puget Sound region pledge they will attend the Seattle walk on Sat. Feb. 27.
Thanks to Tucson’s fair trade print shop, The Gloo Factory, the classic black Save Oak Flat t-shirt is available for sale to the public.
Seattle walkers are eligible for a free t-shirt. Walkers who’d like a shirt are asked to send an email with the subject line, “I want a free Oak Flat t-shirt!” to firstname.lastname@example.org. Shirts will be handed out at the walk, while supplies last.
Show your support, join the walk, bring a friend.
