and certainly should not be enriched by your hard earned dollars.
WE will be away from the computer a lot next week and here's a repost of a blog that deserves a re-read
Drive by the casino to another property and keep the thugs of Pechanga from profiting from destroying families. The Tribe has VIOLATED the civil rights and human rights of 25% of it's people, that's equivalent of 8 MILLION Californians in terms of population. UPDATE: It's EASY to avoid the equivilency whey it's only a few HUNDRED people, but that's what it equates to. Too MANY people who rightfully belong have NEVER shared in the prosperity that Pechanga leads you to believe is available to Pechanga People.
Over the course of the past few years, those of us who have been disenrolled, which was told in KNBC's Without a Tribe in Feb. 2007 and in quite a few articles including A Paper Trail of Tears, in Harpers, and numerous stories in local papers including Pechanga's Expert Contradicts Tribe, have been trying to get the story of Pechanga's despicable actions into the mainstream. Many are being kept from their rightful place in the tribe, via unconstitutional actions of the tribal council (Pechanga's Constitution)
Pechanga, whose leader is Mark Macarro, of Colton High School, (NOT BORN in Poverty on the Rez) now on the DNC's platform committee, (which shows the DNC's lack of concern over the civil rights and ICRA violations) has become the place for scoundrels. It's important that the people exercise good judgement and avoid a tribal enterprise that is corrupt. Recently indicted Tribal Chairman Robert Salgado of Soboba is a hero of Macarro.
Please spread the word by sending this blog address to your friends and family:
Your help in increasing traffic will ensure that our voices are heard. It's a small request, one that can be done from the comfort of your desks. We have a new Speaker of the House in California and we hope for more support for civil rights from Karen Bass. At worst, Pechanga will have to spend more money to grease the palm of another politician. We've already forced them to spend $50 MILLION more than the other tribes to ensure their proposition passed. They had NO confidence that their bad acts would not count against them. AND, if we had more voices, that most probably would have been true.
Thank you from the family of Paulina Hunter and Pablo Apis and the Tosobals.
