Mora Community Rights: Sacred Water, Land, Air and Life:
It is time for a change in order to address
environmental and public health impacts from Los Alamos National Laboratory. Santa Fe County needs a carefully written and agreed-upon community rights-based ordinance that asserts the powers it has to protect its water, air and land—our inalienable rights! There is no “no” in the regulatory system. It is only about how much harm and how much destruction will be regulated. A gathering of interested people will be held:
Date: Tuesday, February 21
Time: 5:30 to 7:30 pm
Where: Santa Fe Main Library
What: Develop community support for a Community Bill of Rights for Santa Fe County. Please join us!
