Posted:Hi, I was on the Psy-forum and spotted this.. thought some of us would like to know..
********* for those who are not aware of what burning man is..... www.burningman.org
any and all support is needed, thank you
Burning Man needs a bit of help, and it needs it fast, so please read on. As you may or may not have heard, the Washoe County Board of Commissioners have refused Burning Man a permit to use property they own near Gerlach, from which the event is staged. This staging area is the ranch from which all operations are run, and where all the gear is stored. Apparently, if they can't use this land, it will make it nearly impossible to organize the event. BM has requested that as many people as possible show up at the county meeting on June 10th in Reno to voice their opinions, and that those who can't make it write letters to the Reno Gazette voicing their displeasure. I figure that a petition wouldn't hurt either, so here's the plan: We need to get at least 5000 signatures in the next 4 days, so we really need to move on this. Please go to the petition site at the link below immediately, sign it, and forward this email to as many sympathetic people as possible. It would probably work best to simply copy and paste this msg into a new email rather then forward so as to avoid getting the text all screwed up, as often happens in forwards. I'll be informing the BM organizers of the petition in hope that they also spread the word, and so that they can bring a printout to the meeting. Again... sorry for the spam, but I figured that this is worth it. The petition is can be signed here:

If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

http://www.burningman.com/news/index.html#washoe br> But the word thus far is not only are there 7 other counties jumping and screaming trying to get BurningMan in there county.. it's a HUGE profit for any small town out there.. And I've already seen 2 re-location plans.. "Just would be nice to keep our current spot out in the middle of no where" - crimson rose.
Everything Gets re-voted this july, and this WILL not cause the event to not be held no matter what that vote is.
