Snake Valley Festival in Baker NV fights SNWA ‘Water Grab’ (tags)
The annual Snake Valley Festival held in Baker, NV featured signs focusing on protecting local aquifers from the Southern Nevada Water Authority's proposed pipeline to Las Vegas. Residents of the Snake and Spring Valleys are trying to raise awareness that if the SNWA pipeline is built the water beneath their feet will be taken to Las Vegas for the benefit of golf courses, fountains and other unsustainable development. Entire spring fed ecosystems will collapse and species like the spring snail risk extinction. Public comment sessions will be held throughout Nevada in the coming few weeks to address the concerns about aquifer depletion by the SNWA pipeline.
Retenes del fin de semana / Weekend checkpoints (7-8/dec/2012) (tags)
Vienen las navidades, y por consecuente, viene más patrullaje y más retenes. También quisieramos advertir que la presencia de agentes de migración suele aumentarse durante el mes de diciembre aprovechándose de que la gente de la comunidad va de viajes. Urgimos mucha precaución en las vías de tránsito, al igual que en los servicios de transporte público, como el Greyhound. Conozca y ejerza sus derechos y manténgase alerta a toda hora, pero no olvide de disfrutar la temporada lo más posible.
The holidays are coming, and as a result, we'll be seeing more patrols and checkpoints. We would also like to warn that the presence of immigration agents tends to increase during the month of December in light of the increase in travel/ We urge utmost caution on the roadways and even on public transportation systems such as the Greyhound. Know and exercise your rights and remain alert at all times, but don't forget to enjoy this season as much as possible!
