Typical reddit and typical if /out/
You scroll down and you find out the post was on the 13th of july and the guy pointing out that the cleanup takes months is downvoted.

No one says garbage is not generated , just that there is a team that spends months combing the site to retrieve every scrap of micro trash left behind, All the photos of rainbow trash use the same trick

People believe what they want to believe and not just on this subject.

We have these threads every year. Every year the retards rant about how "THE HIPPIES" leave their garbage everywhere and trash the place. Every year we get zero photo proof or video of the piles of garbage and trash. The rainbow gathering has happened every year for 52 years now. You'd think we'd have 1000s of photos and videos. Hell all you idiots who "know" that hippies trash everything could just drive out and takes pictures right now. You'd think the USNFS would shut it down, like they tried for burning man.

And yet

you act like the forest service wouldn't happily sell all the trees in the national forest to clearcut logging companies if they could...
this is not pristine virgin land
the primary difference between how national parks and national forests are run, is that national forests sell their timber, national parks do not
rainbow gathering is always on national forest land, it is literally bVilt for large gatherings of the pvblic

the forest service should PARTNER with the rainbow gathering and come up with a way to do a FREE permit process that involves pre-arranging cleanup and water and showers and restrooms but both sides are too stubborn to do that.

I've posted a bunch in this thread as likely one of the only people to have been to several rainbow gatherings, one of my exgirlfriends literally went on to join nic@nite which means nothing to you normies but they're basically some of the most hardcore hippy rainbow dipshits in the scene.

Anyone can show up to these gatherings and for a month or more before, longer if it's nationals, every car camper or homeless or drum circle enjoyer will hear about how there's a gathering in the woods. At regional gatherings the impact is always smaller and usually only the regular rainbow family themselves and whatever couple of extras they managed to pick up along the way. At nationals, people come from around the world. Literally anyone can show up and I think a lot of the trash comes from the broken glass theory, where people see someone else has left some trash and they assume it's okay to leave their own trash. The people who leave trash are 99% retarded normies who don't follow the rainbow road leaving trash because the normie next to them left some trash in the pile. You could show up right now, leave as much trash as you wanted and it would be labeled 'rainbow family trash'.

I know the inner workings of how these gatherings are formed and how the spots are chosen, there's a leadership but it's a loose collection of 'elders' who are basically anyone over 30 who has been traveling for a while or has their shit together on the road. There's no way to collectively elect a leader because 99% of these individuals are batshit insane narcissist's who can barely decide where to put a gathering let alone if someone should be in charge.

Why isn't there a response to this?
>>
>>2755085
>>2755027
>>2755026
The response is that the trash is there for a few weeks tops while being cleaned up, they're national gatherings where normies show up through word of mouth and then trash the place because the normie next to them did and it gets labeled 'rainbow family trashed the place,' as if there's actually more than a few hundred 'real' rainbow family, and if you visited these places even a few months later, besides some of the trails being visible, you would not be able to tell


funnily enough the 'real' rainbow family areusually the only ones who stick around and clean it all up like forest jannies because doing things for free in the community is how they gain clout

>the hippies don't leave trash

>>2755089

Lie. Everything I’ve read said a month or more. And again why should those that want to enjoy the space as well have to deal,with it? Why should the people that pay taxes in those areas have to foot bill? What’s their reward? Being aggressively panhandled?

>10k is a city?
It is legally classified as a city, yes. Definitions vary by state because not everywhere is an over-populated shithole and different Federal entities have separate standards and definitions. The Census Bureau recently raised their own bar from 2,500 people:
>With the new criteria, to qualify as urban, an area must encompass at least 5,000 people
https://www.census.gov/newsroom/blogs/random-samplings/2022/12/redefining-urban-areas-following-2020-census.html
>>
>>2755484
"Urban area" is different from "city."

Now let's look a this from a different angle. 10k people hang out in the woods and only leave >>2755027 much garbage.
>>
>>2755524
10 people hang out in your bedroom but only 3 shit in your bed so it’s ok.
>>
>>2755524
>"Urban area" is different from "city."
Sure, but they need a general term at the Federal level because the definition of "city" varies state by state. The city I'm referencing is legally classified as a city by the state in which it's located and it's population size is within the range of expected numbers at a modern Rainbow Gathering.
>it's not always as bad as it could be
Compelling. At least the oil and gas guys contribute to society while making a mess of the forest. I would say I hope that other Anon shits in your bed but you'd probably enjoy it, filthy degenerate that you are.
