| Hunters, Take note
Why do you hunt? For money? Prestige? Political Influence? Here is
but one more battle, in the larger war on America's Public Trust. Tell
the fascists, "We are not socialists, we are Americans". Fascist attacks
on American Public Trust doctrine, and the North American Model of
Wildlife Conservation, is nothing but an attempt to promote welfare
hand outs for the few, and the well connected. America's Public Trust
doctrine is rooted in 800 years of law, tradition, and heritage. Are you a
serf, supporting the king? Or a freeman, supporting yourself?
What is SkiLink? SkiLink is a test case for Public land grabs by private
interests, and their payed for "elected officials". This may currently be a
Utah issue, but its ramificactions are national, and its current fate is
held in the US Senate.

The Governor of UT: Stop your Public Land Grab!
"This year, Utah Governor Gary Herbert launched an unprecedented attack on our
public lands, suing the United States twenty-two times so as to seize control over
more than 10,000 so-called "highways" crossing National Parks, wilderness and
proposed wilderness. And he signed legislation demanding that the federal
government hand over more than 30 million acres of public land owned by all
American citizens to the State of Utah, including the Grand Staircase-Escalante
National Monument and millions of acres of spectacular redrock
wilderness-quality lands. The Utah Legislature has indicated that some of these
lands would be sold outright to the highest bidder while others would be kept in
state ownership but opened to oil and gas drilling, off-road vehicle use and
extractive industries." Show your opposition to this here: Petition
Actions to protect Greater Canyonlands
Comprised of over 1.4 million acres of publicly-owned wildlands with sheer
canyon walls, deep rivers, soaring mesas, abundant wildlife, and numerous
archaeological and cultural sites, designating Greater Canyonlands as a National
Monument would protect the landscape and habitats from the imminent threats of
mining and drilling. This would fulfill the dream of the original conservation
advocates some 70 years ago, for all generations.
