This year my son asked if we could go to the National Rainbow Gathering, since it was just one state away. So we went. We set up a camp at Kid Village and plugged in helping the kitchen and organic community that was happening there. Every thing was super chipper. But on July 3rd, there was an incident in Kid Village. Every person at that Gathering was peaceably assembled as guaranteed their right by the first Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America!The Federal Government opened fire upon US Citizenry using less than lethal weapons like paintball guns with chemical pepper balls and automatic rubber bullet firing machine guns, and tasers. I saw what happened. If you want to talk about it it is okay to do so here.
On July 5th, I set up a small structure and hung the “Camp Baha” banner, then at 2pm, I gave a talk out in the main Meadow just in front of Kid Village, where the shootings happened. Only 3 people came to my talk, “New Jerusalem in the Rockies.” The talk was killer and the audience was young and enthusiastic. Most people left the gathering early. The ACLU is investigating the Federal Forest Agency for criminal and civil charges.
Prayer is in order.
