The Beehive Collective presents their innovative True Cost of Coal graphic –
a visual exploration of Mountaintop Removal Mining and Resistance
(Bozeman, Mont.) A swarm is coming! The Beehive Design Collective, a non-profit, volunteer driven, political arts organization based in eastern Maine, is headed this way. They are out to “cross-pollinate the grassroots” by creating collaborative, anti-copyright images that deconstruct complex global stories for use as educational and organizing tools.
We will not be meeting May 20, 2009. Our next meeting will be May 27, 2009, at 7 PM in the Montana State University student union 2nd floor cafeteria in the NW corner.
If you agree with our mission, you are welcome to join plan with us.
15 buffalo killed on US 191 - Buffalo Allies of Bozeman signs on to letter to MT Department of Transportation and Highway Patrol
Over the past week, 15 bison were killed on U.S. 191 just north of West Yellowstone in three vehicle collisions. A coalition of bison advocates talked about and drafted a letter that is posted below.
In addition to the letter, we in Buffalo Allies of Bozeman want to send out this message to the public at large. You will notice that the letter talks about increased enforcement; however, we believe that no amount of enforcement will matter unless we in the community take steps to educate each other, slow down, and be aware.
The situation with the buffalo moving to habitat where the highway crosses it will continue to create this situation in the spring. It is imperative that we are aware for our safety and for the safety of the buffalo. Please slow down! Please be aware! Please let your friends and neighbors know that buffalo are in the roadways OUTSIDE OF YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, especially in the spring. Like so many of the changes we would like to see with the buffalo, it's up to us.
