STOP the Desecration of the Sogorea Te shellmound in Glen Cove!
The desecration of the Glen Cove sacred site is scheduled to begin in the next few days.
We are organizing now for direct action to stop the desecration. Do not let this happen!
Action Alert – Glen Cove under imminent threat
Posted on: April 5, 2011
Despite continuous efforts in good faith of Sacred Sites Protection and Rights of Indigenous Tribes (SSP&RIT) to negotiate an agreement to protect and preserve Sogorea Te from the desecration of development, the City of Vallejo and the Greater Vallejo Recreation District are still refusing to abandon their efforts to desecrate a Sacred Native American Burial Site. Those negotiations have reached an impasse and it appears that
THE DESECRATION OF SOGOREA TE (GLEN COVE) MAY BE IMMINENT.
All supporters: please sign up for our text message distribution system (in the right column of this webpage) and subscribe to our action alert email list.
All will be needed to make a presence at Sogorea Te
and provide the strength of unity and prayer.
WARRIORS! BE PREPARED TO RESPOND WITH SHORT NOTICE
SSP&RIT requests that all who are willing to face this assault email the secretary:
secretary.ssp_rit [at] yahoo.com (Please include your phone number for emergency contact.)
AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLAN IS BEING FORMED.
SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE PROVIDED TO SUPPORTERS.
I will stand with pride because I am here for the Ancestors.
I will stand with courage because I am here for the Ancestors.
I will stand with strength because I am here for the Ancestors.
I will stand with compassion because I am here for the Ancestors.
I will stand with respect because I am here for the Ancestors.
Final, Updated, Fixed version of the flier
ALL WARRIORS FOR THE ANCESTORS: The Protect Glen Cove Committee and the Board of Directors of Sacred Sites Protection and Rights of Indigenous Tribes (SSP&RIT) have received information that leads us to believe that the desecration of Glen Cove will begin on April 15, 2011.
ALL WARRIORS WHO WILL ANSWER THIS CALL: SSP&RIT is calling for an ASSEMBLY of all Warriors to gather on April 14, 2011 in front of SSP&RIT headquarters at 400 Keats Drive, Vallejo, California.
Be prepared to actively protest this assault at Glen Cove. You will be camping out at the Sogorea Te site; bring blankets, sleeping bags, tents, food; mess kit, clothing to protect you from chemical attacks (just in case). Any other items you may need or think will be useful. Cameras and video cameras are a must, if you have them. Walkie-talkies are needed for communications. Bring you cell phone chargers.
ALL WARRIORS WHO WILL ANSWER THIS CALL: This is a NON-VIOLENT and PEACEFUL protest. NO WEAPONS, NO ALCOHOL & NO DRUGS.
Bring your sacred medicine and join our prayer circle at Glen Cove. If you can't make the trip, make a phone call and keep the phone lines of GVRD and the City of Vallejo busy.
