Gems protest on Sunday
December 4, 2009
By now, I’m sure that all of you are aware there is some controversy regarding the Wilderness Workshop’s Hidden Gems Wilderness proposal. There is a fundraiser scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6, at the Wheeler in Aspen.
Some of my friends and I are going to be present outside the Wheeler in a peaceful demonstration to show our opposition. This is a citizen campaign only, therefore, we should refrain from associating our presence with any organization for or against this proposal.
Rep. John Salazar does not seem to care what we think about the Hidden Gems campaign. It is our hope to get the attention of John Salazar on the street to tell him what we think and get a response from him that is not some generic reply from some staffer in his office. Please join us if you have something to say about it. I think it would be a good thing for them to just see some opposition to the proposal in person if nothing else.
