And the Youth Shall Lead Us!*

There is a Black Lives Matter Peaceful Protest planned for this Saturday, 9am to Noon in the Bishop City Park.

Here are the details on Facebook and net on the protest from organizers Bea Alexandra and Anna Rose Dossey:

“Hello people of Bishop, we encourage you to join us for another peaceful protest in solidarity to the Black Lives Matter movement. Over the last events, we’ve seen so much support and motivation to keep fighting for racial equality.

They urge you to wear masks, bring sunglasses, and wear sunscreen as we are in the summer months. If you have a water bottle please bring one, if you don’t have either, masks and water can be provided.”

Follow CDC Guidelines to protect yourself and others.

    Make sure that these protesters are practicing 6 foot social distancing. Make it happen! Got to keep everybody safe right? If not arrests should be made! Right?

      They have very clearly stated that they encourage wearing masks and masks will be provided if necessary.

      If you want to be that restrictive, let’s start with all the tourists unmasked at the gas stations first.

      You don’t live here. Nobody cares what you think.

        It’s in the United States that belongs to the American people. I don’t know where you get your entitlement from. You don’t own it up there the taxpayers do.

          ALopez, your “bait” should stay where it belongs, on the end of your fishing line.

            I don’t know what you’re trying to say with that lame statement. Perhaps you should try being blunt. And I don’t mean a marijuana cigarette either. The high Sierras belong to the American people.

          You don’t live up here ?

          If so,why are you so concerned about any type of 2nd planned protest in Bishop ?
          Wasn’t it you that came up with all the rumors about what “you heard” was going to happen,who was going to show up in buses, at the first ?
          Is it that you don’t believe in the protests and what some are trying to say with them,or is it your upset about the Trout season being postponed when it was,and some campgrounds still remain closed,and mad that the locals more or less wanted it to be that way too ?
          Sounds like your upset about the wearing masks and requests to social distance while up here too….I wonder why,and who’s telling you to feel that way ?
          If you don’t live up here,why your concern ?
          You are right,the High Sierra (not sierras),do belong to everybody,but unfortunately,for many think they can come up here to trash up ,ignoring requests and rules,thinking they can do as they please,since they feel they’re our “lifeline”.
          If you don’t live up here,talking the way you seem to do,YOU are a big reason why so many of our residents feel the way they do about many of our visitors.
          If you don’t live up here,tell us where you do live.And I can all but promise most of us won’t find your city website and start barking about what you should and shouldn’t be doing down there,how to handle a planned protest and what and what not to do or wear.

    Don’t forget about social distancing.

    Man, some of these people who live on the east side of the Sierras come across like a bunch of fascist elitist snobs, don’t they?

      Flatlanders are far worse.
