If you want to show your opposition to the HUGE wind facility being built in Ocotillo please see the attached information and plan to join us this Saturday in Ocotillo.

====================================================

STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF OCOTILLO!

TAKE A STAND IN THE SAND

Saturday, August 11 at 7 a.m.

Meet at the Ocotillo Community Center Park

Directions: I-8 to exit S-2 (Ocotillo exit). The park is about 1 mile north of Ocotillo.

It’s time for us all to stand up and say “This must stop!”

40 million acres of public lands are targeted for destruction. Ocotillo is the beginning –
and must be the end. San Diego mountains and wilderness are next for industrial energy
projects.. Help save these beautiful places—and send a message to our leaders:

Stop destroying public lands for private profits by big energy corporations
Stop bulldozing our deserts and blasting tops off mountains
Stop desecrating Native American sacred sites: respect sacred lands
Stop endangering health and safety of residents. Infrasound is dangerous.
Stop the wind scam. Stop the bulldozers.
Stop killing our wildlife. Protect their habitats—and our peace and quiet.
Stop stealing our children’s heritage. Public lands should be protected for us all!

Our Governor says opposition to big energy projects must be “crushed.” We are the people!
Our voices will not be “crushed.” We must stand together to save Ocotillo. There is a better
way. Solar on rooftops and parking lots is cheaper and cleaner.

OCOTILLO IS GROUND ZERO. STAND UP TO DEMAND PROTECTION FOR OUR COMMUNITIES
AND OUR PUBLIC LANDS!

Bring: A crowd of friends. Show posters opposing this destruction and supporting rooftop
solar. Bring water, sunscreen, food, hat, chairs, and stand up for what’s right!

Probably 30-40 people showed up. Someone said Pattern gave everyone the day off because of the protest. Here's the IV Press link:
