and announcing the Tucson Protest! (download Tucson Protest_flier)
Tucson is joining the national movement of Wild Horse enthusiasts along with the Cloud Foundation www.thecloudfoundation.org and our local horse rescue Equine Voices in Green Valley www.equinevoices.org and citizens across the country in protesting the fiscally irresponsible, unnecessary, and cruel roundups of wild horses by the Bureau of Land Management. Congress should never have given them stimulus money (our tax dollars) to remove and maintain our living symbols of freedom in contracted feeding pens.
We are asking for a moratorium on round ups and a hearing and vote on S1579, HR 1018 the Restore our American Mustangs Act (ROAM). Arizona Senator John McCain is a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee where S 1579/HR 1018 the ROAM Act awaits a hearing and his vote. We only have 11 months to pass this legislation.
Protest Event at Senator John McCain’s Downtown Tucson Office
When: Friday January 22, 2010
Where: 407 West Congress Street Suite 103, Tucson Arizona 85701
