6/24/11 Rally for the peaks at AZDEQ

June 25, 2011

Friday June 24, Rally in response to the Call-out from the PROTECT THE PEAKS! Protest Halts Construction, Calls for Action:  Demand that Arizona Department of Environmental Quality change its permission allowing wastewater to be used for snowmaking.

About 20-30 people rallied in front of AZDEQ to bring attention to their role in wastewater proposals from Snowbowl. A lot happened within the two and a half hour rally. The Brass Lung Marching band played belted out awesome ballads. There was chalking done directly before the sidewalk leading up to the office. There were also two banners and lots of megaphone speeches.

Also from the call to action:

Our action is a prayer.

We invite those of you who could not join us today and who believe in the protection of culture, the environment and community health to resist destruction and desecration of the Peaks:

– Join us and others in physically stopping all Snowbowl development!
– Honor and defend Indigenous Peoples’ inherent right to protect Sacred Places
– Resist colonialism and capitalism! Embrace diverse tactics to end Snowbowl’s and all corporate greed
– Demand USDA end Snowbowl’s Special Use Permit
– Demand that the City of Flagstaff Mayor and Council find a way out of their contract to sell wastewater to Snowbowl
– Demand that Arizona Department of Environmental Quality change its permission allowing wastewater to be used for snowmaking.

More photos from the rally will be added later
