“Rally To Learn, Rally To Win”

Property rights rallies planned;
Topics will include wolves and ranching during programs in Dorris, Yreka
  by LEE JUILLERAT, Herald and News 7/14/13

     Property rights and how to protect them will be the focus of two “Rally To Learn, Rally To Win” programs in Yreka and Dorris next weekend.

   Speakers from western states will present the program from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Butte Valley Community Center. It will also be offered from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Yreka Community Theater.

   Speakers will include Ramona Hage Morrison, Casey Anderson and Danny Martinez. Martinez, who lives in New   Mexico and has ranches in Arizona and Nevada, assisted the Hage family during its 22 years of controversial legal battles with the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management on water and property rights. Martinez is also involved in challenging the Forest Service on its road management plans.

   Anderson, an Idaho rancher, will discuss the impact of wolves on ranchers, communities and wildlife.

   “We’re trying to inform people about the law and how you can make change at the local level,” said Martinez, who works as a consultant for a New Mexico county that works with federal agencies   . “That’s the biggest problem we’ve got. The (federal) employees have stepped outside their authority.”

   Martinez said he will discuss problems facing landowners in far northern California, from seriously overstocked forests that pose a danger for major forest fires to proposed road closures.

   “There is a way to fight back,” he   said. “There’s all sorts of remedies out there that people don’t know about. The local levels are where we can stop a lot of stuff.”

   “We believe this a huge opportunity for people who are concerned about all the different things that add quality to our lives,” said Debbie Bacigalupi, one of the organizers. “We’d like to discuss how you can protect your private property rights.”

   Overseeing the discussions will be Michael Shaw, who Bacigalupi said is an expert on United National Agenda 21, which she termed a blueprint for environmental issues that has been supported by the past four American presidents. She said Shaw has successfully countered environmental cases in the San Francisco Bay Area.
