Stop the Desecration of Native American burial grounds

Native Americans, activists and supporters are now occupying Glen Cove to stop the Desecration of Native American Burial Grounds.

The City of Vallejo or the Greater Vallejo Recreation Department are planning to grade, build toilets, create a parking lot and install benches on Native American Burial Grounds. The GVRD claims they have money from grants to destroy those burial grounds. Local residents will get a park, whereas Native American's will lose their ancestors land in the name of development. I talked with many folks while there, and one thing I was told that seemed a bit disturbing was the fact that local residents are trying to poison the trees so they'll die and be cut down. Many trees have already been cut down, and some are hundreds of years old. Removing the mansion may also disturb graves.
