Rainbow Gathering Washington State 2011 News Coverage
July 7: Now officials are saying they don’t know how the Rainbow sister from Weed, CA died. She suffered from cardiac arrest, but no drugs were found near her nor was there any evidence of drug use. The death is under investigation. More here.
Crap journalism here at the Willamette Weekly: Rainbow Gathering in Washington Was a Bum Trip for Some.
July 6: Sad news. A sister died of an overdose at the Gathering. Read about it here.
This one from Oregon Live is pretty good but some of the comments left are pretty rude.: Oregon Live

This is a pretty good news report from KVAL out of Eugene, OR. (link here).
Barry Plunkett is interviewed.
The reporter showed both sides but I think it was way more favorable than some of the things I’ve seen online.
I think they should have interviewed the merchants in Cougar on video. In my experience, most merchants are generally thrilled with Rainbow Gatherings. No matter if there is some shoplifting, which they are used to anyway, their business skyrockets during the Gathering. Generally, the Rainbow Family shows respect and are friendly! It’s only a few folk who are afraid. Poor thangs. 🙂
I wish I could download this video and embed it. I just don’t know how!
I don’t think I will be able to make it to the Gathering this year, although miracles happen.
Please, brothers and sisters, be gentle to the Earth and to each other.
