Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Herald and News 1/28/20122002
Organizers of three relief convoys that brought aid and attention to the Klamath Basin last summer have started planning three convoys for this spring. Although plans are still preliminary, Klamath Bucket Brigade Inc. and the Nevada-based Jarbidge Shovel Brigade intend to put together convoys that will depart from Maine, Virginia and Florida this spring, said Bill Ransom, a bucket Brigade organizer. The convoys would deliver shovels and buckets to governors of 30 states. Last August, the organizers put together convoys in Montana, California and Nevada that traveled through seven Western states and visited 20 communities. That effort raised about $150,000 as well as donations of livestock feed, food and other items for farm families.
