As the Calico tragedy ends, scoping has begun for the Twin Peaks roundup in California. Additionally, Nevada's Virginia Range herd is now in grave danger of also being rounded up. Though the Eagle HMA roundup in Ely, Nevada has been delayed, it has NOT been canceled entirely!
The Battle Continues
In memory of Calico's 40 dead horses and 30 aborted foals.
It is more important than ever our 'Truth Rally" be a large and successful demonstration. We would really appreciate confirmed participant numbers by the end of this week
Our goal is to inform the press there will be 100 people attending this demonstration; the invitation to newscasters will be going out February 12, 2010. PLEASE send to the names below ASAP, how many in your party that will be attending, if you are bringing your own signs, and the distances you are traveling to join us.
Of course, last minute attendees are definitely welcome and please don't forget to invite your friends, family!
Sign Suggestions: 'DEATH IS NOT AN OPTION!' 'STOP THE KILLING OF OUR WILD HORSES!' 'WE DEMAND THE TRUTH!' 'TRUTH NOT LIES!' 'STOP ROUNDUPS NOW!' 'TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH!' 'MUSTANGS – OUR NATIONAL HERITAGE' 'BROKEN HORSES – BROKEN PROMISES'
At our 'Truth Rally,' we will present documentation to prove what advocates have been trying to get across all along. What BLM does not say is more revealing than what they do say. We are in the process of preparing a list of just a few of BLM's incorrect and/or incomplete statements, along with the absolute facts of BLM's mismanagement of our wild horses and burros. The goal is for change and open communication to set this program on the path that works for the horses and burros. There will be an informational table at the Truth Rally with these fact sheets to present to both the press and to the public.
It's high time for a thorough investigation of BLM's Wild Horse & Burro Program!
