No Loop 202 Discussion at De-Occupy Phoenix

Everyone is welcome to an informational presentation on efforts to end the furthering of the proposed loop 202 freeway extension. Stand up for the health and well being of the people and land over economic development!

Join members of Gila River Against Loop 202 and No South Mountain Freeway as we will be discussing the current timeline of the freeway, the freeway’s origins in the international trade corridor CANAMEX, and why we are organizing to defend the health and well being of the people and land from corporate profits.

If built, the freeways attack on the health of both Akimel O’odham and Maricopa indigenous communities will be magnified far past the current smog inducing state of the road. These negative health impacts will definitely extend to the lives of residents in Ahwatukee and the larger valley area as well. In addition, the current alignment calls for the destruction of the western side of South Mountain, a cultural and sacred site to O’odham people.

Join us on Saturday, January 14, at 4:30 PM at DE-Occupy Phoenix (held at Cesar Chavez plaza) to hear about the struggle to stop loop 202, and how you can help to protect the mountain.
