Native Awareness Walk at Mt. Wachusett
06 Jul 2000
On Sunday, July 9 at 10am the Native Awareness Walk across Massachusetts arrives at Mt. Wachusett, home of THE largest stand of threatened old-growth forest in the state. Come greet them and add your voice in the forests defence.
On Sunday, July 9 at 10am the Native Awareness "Walk Across Massachusetts" arrives at Mt. Wachusett in north-central Mass. for a ceremony on the summit. Mass Earth First! invites all friends of the Earth and Native peoples to come greet the walkers and learn about, and be in, the largest stand of old-growth forest in the state.
Unfortunately, the Dept. of Environmental (mis)Management and Wachusett Mountain Associates (a profit making operation that leases the ski area)are all for destroying a vital buffer zone protecting the old-growth from prevailing winds so that the ski area can expand. Mass EF! and others are hoping to stop the project which could begin as early as THIS MONTH!
Mass EF! is establishing a base camp to launch nonviolent direct actions in defense of the old-growth buffer zone should current court challenges fail.
Come to Sunday's event and learn more about the old-growth, the Native people who hold the mountain sacred, and to experience the forest yourself.
For more info call Mass EF! at (413)367-9352 or e-mail valeoftheoaks (at) hotmail.com
