RALLY For Iowa's Water & Land Legacy - February 9, 2011

As many of you know, I work for Iowa's Water & Land Legacy Coalition in addition to my lucrative high paying career as a blogger under the tutelage of desmoinesdem.

Details are below, but we will be holding a public rally at the Iowa State Capitol on the morning of February 9th, 2011 to publicize Iowans support for fully funding the Natural Resources & Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund that was created through a vote of 63% of Iowans on November 2nd.

In addition to supporting the funding of the Trust Fund, we are also pushing back against efforts to ban public land acquisition by the Iowa DNR and cuts in REAP (Resource Enhancement & Protection).  These are important programs with water quality, soil conservation, and wildlife habitat benefits.  

You can visit www.iowaswaterandlandlegacy.org to learn more, but information about the rally is below.

Video - Des Moines Iowa peace rally and memorial procession 10/27/07

Here are some links to the video we recorded at the October 27th Iowa peace rally.  I have labelled each video with the name of the speaker, and the youtube page has a short description.  I highly recommend Ako Abdul-Samad, and Mayor Cownie also gave some good comments.  We wanted to share this with everyone who wasn't able to make it, feel free to post or pass it around!
