DOODÁ (Absolutely No) DESERT ROCK POWER PLANT!
Resistance to energy development on indigenous land

As part of a California-wide March tour, Elouise Brown will be speaking and showing films at the World Beat Center in San Diego on the evening of Sunday, March 28th.

Elouise Brown is a Diné (Navajo) traditionalist and president of the Doodá Desert Rock committee. She will speak about dangers posed by the coal industry, the exploitation of indigenous land by energy companies, and the ongoing struggle to prevent the Desert Rock plant from ever existing.

Several short films will be screened:
Making a Stand at Desert Rock- by Klee Benally (8:00)
Killing Coal: Four Corners in the Crosshairs (7:10)
Our Native Roots – Inside the Dooda Desert Rock Camp

BACKGROUND
Since December of 2006, the community of Chaco Rio in the Navajo Nation (SW of Farmington, New Mexico) has been blockading entry to the site of a proposed 1,500 megawatt coal fired power plant. Desert Rock would be the third coal plant within a 20-mile radius in a region already suffering from extreme levels of toxic emissions.
