UPDATE 6/7/11: Bay Trail and Association of Bay Area Governments Suspends $200,000 Grant to GVRD!
On the morning of May 31st, supporters of the Glen Cove native encampment converged outside the offices of the Bay Trail project in downtown Oakland to demand that Bay Trail divest from the Greater Vallejo Recreation District's (GVRD) desecration of the Sogorea Te sacred burial ground.
Over 65 people gathered in front of the Bay Trail offices and vowed to pursue further action if the $200,000 is not immediately pulled from GVRD's plans to bulldoze the burial grounds and build bathrooms, a parking lot, and paved trails on top of it.
Spirits at the demonstration were high despite the rain — protesters were determined to get the message across to Bay Trail. After an hour and a half of picketing, demonstrators entered the lobby of the office building en masse to deliver a demand letter to Bay Trail.
Within 30 minutes, the executive director of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), which oversees the Bay Trail Project, had requested a meeting with the Protect Glen Cove Committee for the following day. Members of local tribes and their supporters have been camping out at Glen Cove for a month and a half defending the site.
