San Pasqual Is the Location for Peaceful Protest Against Civil/Human Rights Violations

 JANUARY 11, 2015
Multi Tribal Peaceful Protest will be happening at  
27450 N Lake Wohlford Rd, Valley Center CA 92082

The event will draw attention to the growing number of human and civil rights violations occurring in Indian Country. The violations, which include the denial of such basic rights as due process and equal protection, have contributed to the growing number of disenrollments, banishments, and denial of membership that have swept through Indian Country. 

This protest is sponsored by descendants of The San Pasqual tribe, which has denied membership to a family due to a miscalculation of blood quantum, which protesters say they refuse to correct.  Injustices like this are not unusual since the advent of tribal gaming.

In California alone, nearly thousands Indian people have been stripped of their tribal citizenship since the approval and expansion of Indian Gaming in 2000. Additionally, thousands more have been denied their birthright as tribes close their roles in an attempt to limit the number of those who benefit from Indian Gaming.

JOIN US in protesting for the rights of Native Americans stripped or kept from citizenship in their tribes.  And there is a SECOND Protest:
