Justice For Our Desert
This Fall, on October 7th and 8th, Nevada Desert Experience will be holding its annual event Justice For our Desert (JFoD). In the past we have celebrated the art and culture of our desert community to remind the public and faith communities that our spirits are just as important as our service to help protect the desert responsibly. Focusing on community, education, and action, we invite you to come and take part in various workshops to study peace and practice protest in Nevada.
This year our work to shut down the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) and return its land to the Western Shoshone Nation is being challenged by Nye County. We are being told that those who unlawfully demonstrate will suffer greater prosecution than we have seen in the years past. This is a backward step in the NNSS dismantling its nuclear waste site and making our desert safe again.
Please take extra notice of our need for support against the continual threat of nuclear technologies on our environment. Make your voice heard as we rally together this October on Indigenous peoples day to restore the land to its healthier stewardship. May peace prevail on Earth.October 7th 2018
