East Bay Millionaire John Nady has begun building his vacation home on Rattlesnake Island, the ancient political and religious center of the Elem Tribe, in Lake County. Using his wealth and influence, he has already strong-armed his way through the planning regulations, and has just started laying the foundations on the island. John Nady is part of the 1%!
For more than 150 years the Elem Tribe have struggled to regain their Ancestral Homeland. Now they call on the people of Oakland to support them to stop the desecration.
Whether it's for gold, silver, coal, uranium or leisure, John Nady is part of a long history of the 1% who have exploited Indigenous lands.
Jim Brown, a traditional cultural leader of the Elem Tribe, says: 'We, the 99% are tired of the 1% controlling everything with their wealth, with their greed, and with the hypocrisy they brought to the United States. We need to chase these foreign governments out of our land and turn it back over to the people. We need everyone to support our aboriginal rights'
Bring noise-makers, and let's show Nady that from Lake County to the Bay Area, we will oppose this desecration. We will march from the Grand Lake Theater, Lakepark & Grand Ave, into the exclusive neighborhood of Piedmont- home of John Nady and the 1%!
STOP THE DESECRATION! STOP THE 1%!
