Long Range Resistance invites you to an important "hearing" so that the voices of the forest may be heard:
March 7th, 2012
Santa Cruz County Building
Room 525 -- 701 Ocean Street
Gather at 9:00am sharp
We will form a circle outside and enter the LAFCO meeting as a group.
On the morning of March 7th, the final legal block to UCSC's planned expansion into the forest of Upper Campus is expected to be lifted. Upper Campus is outside of the Santa Cruz city limits, which means that LAFCO (the Local Agency Formation Commission, a state agency) must grant approval for water and sewer service extensions before any development can happen.
UCSC's current expansion proposal calls for building on 240 acres in what is now forest and chaparral & housing up to 2,000 additional students. Long Range Resistance is a coalition of people on and off campus who are dedicated to creatively resisting UCSC expansion through community education, grassroots organizing and direct action.
Let's gather together to remind the powers-that-be that destroying the unique ecological and cultural landscape of Upper Campus is not an acceptable option. Let's remind them that we are communities with the courage to resist their destructive and unsustainable agenda.
