A call for decentralized action

Print Email

editor: This came in over the email system with a request to post for all the world. This is from the second affinity group to form and start their basecamp. They are calling themselves wage slave.

Take to the forest. Set up shop and start your plans. It has never felt so good to take your own power back. They can't stop you from camping in the woods - it is not illegal. Set up your basecamp now. Become what your heart desires. All walks of life in Flagstaff look to the mountain for all kinds of relief. From the most necessary medicines to a playful romp in the snow, she gives it all. It is time we give back. The earth cannot handle the strain we are placing on her and further artificial means will only hasten her demise. Help stop the madness now.

We hear you grumbling in offices, restaurants and coffee shops about how much like Mr. Burns (the Simpsons tv show) Eric Borosky is and how much you would like to tear down the ski area. And we know you are not anarchists or dirty punks or some overheated kiddies. You are a woman (thanks m) in her mid 50's or 60's who grew up with the mountain. You are a 30 year old mother of two who's children are not guinea pigs. You are a medicine man who relies on the mountain to keep his family and community healthy. You are the 23 year old dude who just does not want a mouth full of toilet water every time he face-plants while snowboarding. You are the Snowbowl employee that realizes you will be forced to WORK IN POOP-WATER EVERY DAY, and that is a risk nobody should have to take.

Organize now, before it is too late and we all have to live with the decisions of one greedy business owner who thought he could play god. If the mountain really is a sacred place worth defending, that time is right now!!!

Start a twitter page and start tweeting with the hashtag #nopoopsnow and we can start to talk to each other. Besides truesnow.org you can go to http://hashtags.org/nopoopsnow to see this hash's feed. You can also make more hashes and use hashtags.org to aggregate them on the fly and see how it all works.

Take your power back! Camp the Peaks!
