UPDATE: The Beehive Design Collective unfortunately had car problems about three or four hours away from Durango, and did not make it to the November 13th event, though Louise Benally from Black Mesa did, and we had a wonderful time. Thanks to everyone who came out! We raised $59 and a BUNCH of food for the Caravan in Support of Indigenous Resistance Communities of Black Mesa. The Bees have rescheduled for Saturday, December 4th, before the holy!holy!holy! (anarcho-gypsy-folk-punk concert) in Durango!

Join Earth First! Durango (which doubles and triples as chapters of Root Force and Rising Tide) and the GroundUp Arts Collective for an afternoon of education, outreach, and solidarity with the resistance communities of Black Mesa, Arizona.

Saturday, November 13th, 4PM @ the GroundUp Arts Collective, 1051 East 2nd Avenue in Durango, Colorado.

We will be joined by Black Mesa resister Louise Benally, who will talk about the on-going struggle, and the Beehive Design Collective, who will be presenting their True Costs of Coal graphic.

We are also seeking other relevant presenters, performers, musicians, artists, etc. who would like to take part in the event. Contact for more information.

Admittance will be based upon a sliding scale monetary donation and/or food drive donation, but no one will be turned away due to lack of donations or funds.

All proceeds go to support the upcoming Black Mesa Indigenous Support (BMIS) caravan and resister families on the ground on Black Mesa.
