SAGE Council Interview on Petroglyphs Airs Tonight on KUNM
Listen in to KUNM 89.9FM tonight, Monday, November 21st, from 8:00 PM to 8:30PM for an interview with the Sacred Alliance for Grassroots Equality (SAGE) Council's leadership and a reflection about the historic struggle to stop the extension of six-lane Paseo del Norte through the sacred petroglyphs on Albuquerque's West Mesa.
Yesterday afternoon nearly 400 people joined a march to give homage to the petroglyphs' survival for over 2,000 years now. By tonight's interview, a decision will have been made by the New Mexico State Cultural Properties Review Committee as to whether the road will be allowed to move forward.
This interview is part of "Espejos de Aztlan," a weekly radio program highlighting the courage, strength and beauty of community organizing efforts such as that of SAGE in New Mexico. Espejos has been on-air since 1979 and is part of the Raices Colectiva which conducts programming on news, culture and music from a Latino perspective on KUNM 89.9.
