Rainbow/Legaliaison Alert 5/15/93
For some misguided reason some one is encouraging folks not to write
objections to the Forest Service about its proposal to restrict peaceable
assembly on public land, but to write to their congress person instead.
Sure, write to your congress person, by all means. But remember we are
dealing with an ADMINISTRATIVE -- not a CONGRESSIONAL -- act.
Anyone who wants to pretend that the administrative branch of government
does not exist is, of course, free to do so. However folks who want to stay in
touch with reality should recognize that the only reason for this
communication, and all previous communication on this issue, was to discuss a
specific proposed regulation, which was, in reality, produced by the
administrative branch. Not writing to the Forest Service will greatly weaken
whatever chance there might be to stop this regulation.
Absolutely, council on the regulation at the gathering. But don't let anyone tell
you that discussion about this issue should be limited to the National Rainbow
Gathering. Whether or not they are presently aware of it, this proposed
regulation will effect EVERYBODY. Council on it at parties, work, play,
church, school, at home, in your car, anywhere and everywhere you can.
There will be a Legaliaison council in D.C. beginning the second week of July.
WRITE, CALL, LOBBY, FILIBUSTER or WHATEVER, anybody who might
help stop this regulation, but be sure to write, before August 4th to:
