Dakota Rural Action member Juli Ames-Curtis is throwing a concert for her neighbors and fellow Black Hills water-drinkers. The "It's About Our Water" concert happens Saturday evening, downtown Custer. Why should you go?
- It's a protest against Powertech/Azarga's dangerous scheme to mine uranium in Custer and Fall River counties.
- It's part of the "Hands Across the Land" national day of action against dirty fuel organized by the Sierra Club.
- It's in downtown Custer at the Old Songbird Café... and what better place for live music than downtown Custer?
- It's free!
Juli Ames-Curtis offers this invitation:
Almost everyone I have talked to in Custer is against this mine.... Most were very concerned over the water use and granting of water rights to a Chinese/Canadian company. Our concert will be fun and also a way to become more informed of the issue [Juli Ames-Curtis, press release, 2014.05.07].
Here are the concert details:
- What: It’s About the Water Free Concert
