I just heard a report that the Tecate border crossing has been closed due to the still out-of-control Harris fire burning in the Potrero area.
I’m worried that all the attention will be on the Witch fire burning in North County and Ramona — will Mexico be forgotten? The Border Angels are collecting donations for all evacuees:
COMMUNITY ADVISORY: PLEASE HELP
M.A.P.A. , Border Angels, Chicano Park, AFSC, Gente Unida, House of
Mexico and more join forces to collect blankets, food, water, canned
goods, clothes, tents, sleeping bags etc for all those suffering because
of the terrible fires on both sides of the border. Tecate, East County
San Diego, North County, San Ysidro, South Coutny, the canyon areas….
all need your help. Please bring donations to CHICANO PARK. (5 Freeway,
Cesar Chavez Exit) look for kiosk under the Coronado bridge in the heart
of Chicano Park.
