Grannies and Birders Against Bullies:
Boise Citizens Protest the takeover of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge by Armed Bullies
What: A public rally in support of public lands and against the armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge by armed bullies, sponsored by the Boise Broadband (a local chapter of Great Old Broads for Wilderness), Western Watersheds Project, and many unaffiliated concerned citizens.
Why: To send a message to the armed vigilantes trying to steal the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge— to “get out and give the public back its wildlife refuge.” The Refuge is a birding mecca, home to hundreds of species of birds as they fly along the Pacific Flyway, and a favorite destination for Boise birders. We strongly condemn the bullies’ calls to privatize this regional gem.
Additionally, the rally will send a message to the government to prosecute the bullies. Public lands are part of America’s heritage and the government must enforce the laws that protect our public lands. Public lands management should not be done through bullying, intimidation, and armed anarchy.
There will be excellent photo opportunities with grandmothers, birders in birding gear, and more.
When: Tuesday, January 19, 2016 (12:00 pm- 1:00 pm)
Where: Idaho Capitol Building (700 W. Jefferson St., Boise), south side
