SAVE THE RAVE! (CA)

 
    "I'm sure most of you heard already about assemblywoman Ma’s proposed legislation vilifying rave attendees and promoters in the extreme. If electronic music is criminalized, our government will succeed in alienating a generation of Californians.

Their attempt to ban raves outside of the clubs is a misguided attempt to address some of the problems that took place at large events over the summer at the Cow Palace and LA Coliseum.
If passed, any event with DJs on public property is illegal. EDM events at Treasure Island, banned. Bill Graham Civic, The Cow Palace, The Regency Center... banned!
Electronic music fans are clearly the sacrificial lamb for Ms. Ma and some of her colleagues who would rather play politics than actually tackle the issue of illegal drug use in a meaningful way. Our focus must remain on keeping people safe, rather than demonizing a community. And we as a community; top to bottom, young and old, new raver or jaded burner, have to respond with our voices.
Use your promo lists, club lists, DJ lists and friends lists, to forward this message below asking people to join a Facebook page and e-mail list that will have action alerts for how we to respond, including protesting, attending hearings, writing our representatives in the State Assembly, State Senate, and other things we can do to change the narrative on this issue and defeat this law.
Don't assume someone else will do this something so you don't need to. You are someone else.
Spread the word and Save The Rave!
Thank you so much, and Happy Holiday
Your Friends at SKILLS, Jason, Tim and Mirinda"
