Midburn Shutdown??

Postby Popeye » Sat May 16, 2015 4:01 pm

They are still fighting it but it looks like Midburns permit has been rejected and work in the desert has stopped. Burners are asked not to arrive.

That's a major bummer. I wonder what the real reason the police won't approve the permit is.

I think it's because they heard that a Palestinian would be attending. :shock: :oops:

It appears that the police will now issue a permit, but with all sorts of batshit stipulations---such as surveillance cameras all over the place. No glass whatsoever can be brought into the event. The insane list goes on and on. :roll:

I don't like the idea of cameras recording everything people do but maybe they can get that worked out for next year. At least Midburn will happen.

It is worth pointing out that the MidBurn organizers are not posting on this site, you should be going to their FB page for updates, information, and to participate in that conversation (as well as show them support).

I'm attending MidBurn and the spirit of these burners is amazing!
