Thank you for sharing with Censored News. Long Walk 4 Return to Alcatraz is walking to uphold Native American sovereignty. The walkers today, Friday, Oct. 25, 2013, are walking west from Monarch Pass on highway 50 toward Gunnison, Colorado. The walk departed from Washington DC on July 15, 2013 and will arrive in Alcatraz on Dec. 21, with a ceremony on Dec. 22, 2013.
Update: Michael Lane said, "Day 103: went over Monarch Pass yesterday. That was something. We struggled today though. At Western Colorado College on Gunnison tonight and we did a presentation there. Thank you to Jan, Ed and Nancy in Howard and Salida, and thank you to Heather and Skye in Gunnison. Walking through Gunnison tomorrow and heading to Montrose, where hopefully we will find a place to stay for a couple nights."
If you can offer a place to stay, or support in Montrose, Colorado, or Green River, Utah, or elsewhere, or help with food, supplies or stay place, call the walkers cell 202-436-6576.
