Blackberry Pie Society members getting ready for the Bohemia Mining Days Parade in Cottage Grove. We joined with other groups, Sustainable Cottage Grove and Occupy Cottage Grove to represent the growing local efforts in progressive causes. During the parade we blew whistles to publicize our next day's public showing of the Brave New Films movie, "War on Whistleblowers", calling for greater acceptance of the value of an informed citizenry and protection for those doing the difficult task of making information available despite the efforts of powerful institutions to keep secret many facts they should be ashamed of.
