This is a direct copy from a friend’s post to my wife’s Facebook page.
We just had a long chat with an un-named principal at the “Claude Moore Colonial Farms” in McLean, Virginia. They are the privately funded park ordered to shut down their non-profit, self sustaining operation by the Nation Park Service, even though they receive NO federal funds, for the duration of Obama’s government shutdown.
They are literally barricading themselves on the property and facing arrest by the NPS [so called] police. They could use some local help. Please share this post on your page, and especially if you know of anyone or group in their local area.
They are afraid to leave the property to get feed for the animals and supplies for fear of being denied to return because the whole staff remained on property when the NPS police approved only one person on property. BULLSHIT !!!
They need volunteers with small to medium flat bed trucks, steak beds, box trucks, (class B style or less), to pick up hay and grain and some other basic supplies within a 40 mile radius of their location. A motorcycle escort to their gate for the deliveries would be PROFOUND !!
The management has offered free repair, welding, shop space with a fully stocked shop for all kine trades and much more to anyone who can assist including a BBQ and feast for those that come to their rescue. We’re told that the Fairfax County Police are sympathetic to their plight, and with some major regional support, they might just really step up and show down the Fed’s “Park police.”
This is well past farce and headed towards criminal harassment.
