5/10 Solidarity with the Native Encampment at Glen Cove

An evening of information, updates and ways to get involved.

Tuesday, May 10 7:30pm

Please join organizers and participants in the ongoing native struggle at Glen Cove in Vallejo for this timely and important event:

For three weeks, members of the local native community and their supporters have been occupying the 15 acre Glen Cove sacred site along the Carquinez Strait in order to stop the city of Vallejo’s, Greater Vallejo Recreation District, from destroying this sacred ancestral burial ground and turning it into a parking lot, bathrooms and paved trail. Spiritual leaders from Ohlone, Miwok, Pomo and other local tribes consider the proposed development plans to be an offensive desecration of this holy area that has already seen many years of abuse in the hands of settlers. Furthermore, they consider the manipulation of their ancestors’ burial site to be a violation of their human and religious rights. The spiritual encampment has successfully held off the development thus far and it continues to grow in size and strength. This event will give an overview of the current struggle and ways to show solidarity and get involved. There will also be space for questions and discussion in order to build momentum across the Bay Area in order to win this fight. The event will also serve as a site to bring donations for the encampment for those who can not travel there themselves (see below)

Featuring speakers
Corrina Gould, Chochenyo Ohlone, Founder/Indian People Organizing for Change
Wounded Knee De Ocampo, Miwok, President of SSP&RIT
