We need YOU at camp, NOW.
The BLM has responded to Max and Will’s letter posted January 28, 2021 with a letter dated February 1, 2021 stating that Max and Will are in violation of the law, camping longer than permitted. The letter is official notification of their violation and requires them to remove personal property and leave the campsite in 24 hours, and that failure to move “may result in criminal or civil penalties.”
We are pulling out all stops to try to keep Max and Will at Thacker Pass, but they may be forced off the property. We do not believe it is strategic for Max and Will to get arrested right now (it is not yet the time for confrontation).
So we urgently need people who can replace Max and Will at Thacker Pass for 14 day stretches. They are allowed to return to the site after 14 days, for another 14 days.
A continuous occupation of Thacker Pass is vital for this effort.
We are hoping we can rally enough people to cover 4-5 days at a time over the next 14 day stretch so that Max and Will can comply with the law. We have a few people who will be at camp for a few of the next 14 days but we need more to get full coverage of the 14 days Feb 3-17.
If you can come and spend 4-5 days at Thacker Pass NOW is the time!
Please read the camp rules, the packing list, and the COVID protocol here before you commit to coming. To let us know you’d like to come, simply contact us via the website or on social media.
