Long Walk 4 Update Return to Alcatraz!  

By Brenda Norrell  Censored News

The Longest Walk 4 Return to Alcatraz begins in less than two weeks, on July 15, 2013, in DC.
"The main things we need are liaisons for parks on the route, and Indigenous Walkers. People with vehicles would be good, too, and bulk food," said Michael Lane, logistics coordinator. 
Camping is needed, and food, in Pennsylvania for the last two weeks of July, as walkers begin the five month trek across America. The walk begins with a Sunrise Ceremony in DC.
Earthcycles and Censored News do not yet have a sponsor, or a vehicle, to broadcast the 5-month Long Talk Radio show again, but we would like to. We plan on Native youths serving as radio hosts and interviewers. We could use a donated van for the radio show, as gas is expensive for the big Earthcycles  bus. It would be a great opportunity to work with Native American radio shows to provide news on current issues, and Native music programming, that can be shared.
Contact Longest Walk 4 organizers, to help arrange camping or overnight sleeping places, beginning with Pennsylvania. Vehicles are used to transport camping gear, food and kitchen equipment:
