Community leaders have organized a protest against the government shutdown, happening today at 4pm at the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. Local businesses have been losing income for weeks as campers and climbers have cancelled plans to come to the park. At the same time, CARPA is ostentatiously running a recruitment fair 7 miles from the park entrance. Come stand with the people of Joshua Tree and let the government know what you think!
