Black Rock International Burner Hostel

I am forwarding the following message from Hagey at the BRIBH. The first setback was the theft of a vehicle and trailer with shade structure. This is much worst.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In a nutshell, the authorities are SHUTTING US down, due to complaints
by a FEW neighbors who know how to use "The System" to their advantage.

We were BOMBARDED today by officials from the City of Sparks, County
Health Department, Sparks Police, and Sparks Fire Department.

Effectively, we cannot house or assist most of the people who are
expecting to find friends here, an oasis, shelter, rides, and support.

We need people to come here, but park away from here, and NOT park on
this street, walk down here, and ADOPT people who need your help, and
take them away from here as rapidly as possible, starting tomorrow and
all through Monday and Tuesday, and do whatever is necessary to give
them the Burning Man experience they were expecting, and the
hospitality they were expecting.

Please show the World what Burners can do to support one another when
they are unified and inspired.

We need a MIRACLE here!

TWO ENORMOUS setbacks this year is too much to bear...

Please do not e-mail us or call us on the phone, which only makes
things worse.

Please help these people.

This BRIBH is now effectively only a footnote in History after many
years of success and will no longer exist at this location in the
future.

Please pass along this message to any and all list of concerned
Burners.

Hagey. Very sad, in tears, frustrated, angry, and exhausted.
