To all our relations,

This is an update on the latest anti-public assembly regulations:

As previously explained, the National Forest Service had a new regulatory proposal ready to go, the only thing holding it up was President Bush's moratorium on regulations. On January 8, 1993 Dina Apple, a regulation writer for NFS, told me that the Secretary of Agriculture had granted this regulation an exemption from the President's moratorium. Ms. Apple said that they would be sending their rulemaking to the Office of Management and Budget for preliminary approval within "a couple of days."

This afternoon I again spoke with Ms. Apple and she told me the draft of the regulations had already been sent to OMB.

The accompanying Rainbow Legaliaison Action Primer contains information and suggestions for mounting a campaign against this new regulation. In my opinion everything possible should be done, as soon as possible, to stop this regulation to prevent the necessity of having to go to court. Although the Family has been fortunate in prior dealings with the judicial system, courts do not seem to be becoming remarkably more tolerant, and it's only a matter before the NFS finds a judge who likes the idea of permits and the erosin of rights.

Letters and petitions are the only way I can think of to address this problem before it goes to court.

We love you.

In the Spirit of Life, Love, Truth, Equality, Justice, Freedom,
