Rainbow Family Gathering advises participants to ‘stay where you are until further notice’

Apparently, no one knows where the Rainbow Family Gathering is headed next now that the Plumas National Forest has closed the Indian Creek area and ordered campers there to leave.

This is the message left for gatherers this morning on the Rainbow Gathering Lightline.

“Currently the Forest Service has issued a special closure of the gathering and has placed roadblocks keeping gatherers from coming onto site. This is an evolving situation and being figured out on the land. Stay where you are until further notice. Do not go to the current site as folks are being told they will be ticketed for trespassing. We will be updating information as it becomes available to us. Please check back.”
