"A Slow Genocide of the People": Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land
http://www.democracynow.org - The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments. Broadcasting from Flagstaff, Arizona, we speak with Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust, and Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician. "It's really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it's estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines," Benally says. Benally also describes the struggle to preserve the San Francisco Peaks, an area considered sacred by 13 Native tribes, where the Snowbowl ski resort is using treated sewage water to make snow.

Ancient quarry
Canyon de Chelly National Monument - Reserve (a national monument) in the United States. Located in northeastern Arizona within the Navajo reservation. Access to the canyon is limited, visitors may visit it only with a guide, usually because of the Navajo. The only exception to this rule is the tourist trail "Ruins of the White House." The most amazing thing in the canyon - a vertical wall. In addition, they look like they are covered with a plaster, mostly likely the same breed as the arrays themselves. What were they mining in sandstone, is the question? Canyon de Chelly is horizontal layers of sandstone, which raises the question of, where did the vertical "lines" come from? I went on Google Earth, looked close up, but then found something interesting. If you back away to see where it shows the borders of the "Four Corner States" from high up, there is a big "circle" of mountain ranges in which "canyons" are found, including the Grand Canyon. Canyon de Chelly is in the middle of that circle. The geology of Arizona contains some great copper deposits that are still mined today, and also gold and silver. There are also precious gemstones and minerals that are formed with copper, and petrified wood. Perhaps Canyon de Chelly was an exploratory mining operation which didn't yield as much (if anything) as the Grand Canyon (much larger and bigger). There seems to be one point of entrance to the canyon with branches coming off of it. Another question arose, If there is a Petrified Forest National Park of "petrified wood" ("Petrified Forest National Park is a United States national park in Navajo and Apache counties in northeastern Arizona" -- and Canyon de Chelly is located in northeastern Arizona), then perhaps the mining is taking place at a site much like the one in the video you did on Lukomorie. Just some thoughts to add to the mix. I think it's a quarry of Atlantis. Support the channel https://www.paypal.me/philippdruzhinin

Uranium Mine Project Approved
April 8, 2015 - NAZ Today reports on a uranium mine project being approved near the Grand Canyon. A federal judge has approved the reopening of a uranium mine just six miles from the south rim of Grand Canyon. The mine has been closed since 1990, but its owners, Energy Fuels Resources, are now free to resume operations, pending an appeal of the case. U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell ruled against a lawsuit brought by the Havasupai tribe, Grand Canyon Trust, Center for Biological Diversity and Sierra Club. They claimed the reopening of the mine should have required a new review of environmental impacts and cultural impacts at a sacred Havasupai tribal site. Yesterday's ruling affirmed that the permit granted for Canyon Mine in 1986 has no expiration date, and allows its operation indefinitely, without further review.

U.S. Miners Want Reversal Of Uranium Mining Ban Near Grand Canyon
The U.S. mining industry asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday to overturn an Obama-era rule, that prohibits the mining of uranium on public lands adjacent to the Grand Canyon. The National Mining Association (NMA) and the American Exploration and Mining Association (AEMA) filed the petitions, wanting to reverse a 2012 ban on uranium mining claims on more than one million acres of public land adjacent to the canyon. Conservation groups think the ban should remain in place until scientists have time to study the contamination risks. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/3_OtHuOycUc/u-s-miners-seek-reversal-of-uranium-mining-ban-near-grand-canyon-idUSKCN1GM001 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Uranium Mine Opening in Grand Canyon in Arizona during JH
Anyone find it strange the US Government, Department of Interior has banned the new mining of uranium in the US but is going to reopen an existing mine already contaminating the air, water, environment of the Grand Canyon in June during Jade Helm operations? Since the announcment PNC Bank, the sponsor of opening the mines has not said they are going to halt their reopening of the mine. And the Department of Interior has not said for them to even though even indiginous people in the area could be affected and people all the way into Mexico, Califonia, Texas, Utah, Arizona and many others. Also what about the threat of ISIS? What if they got the mine and started taking uranium? I know it would probably be bombed before anything could be done, but its already a known environmental hazard in the region why reopen it during the largest American training exercise in history on American soil?

1987 Grand Canyon Round River Rendezvous & Uranium Mine Action
This is the one video clip that probably means the most to me from over 300 hours in my Earth First! archive, and I didn't shoot it. I did record audio of the Sagebrush Patriots Rally that year aat the RRR, and release a 96-minute cassette of that music a year later, "Battle Cries From The North Rim." But I think these four clips were a big inspiration for me to go to video in 1988. Hollenhorst liked us, and the four clips almost make a single "How to take over a uranium mine" how-to video. And I thought that was pretty cool! Later, I thought, people 180-feet up in redwoods? Might make inspiring video! All kinds of old-timey Formanistas in these clips, like Mike Roselle... hmm... Nancy Z, Roger Featherstone, John Seed, Dana Lyons (singing "Our State Is A Dumpsite" to a circle), Jeff Hoffman (you can hear him directing recon plans, and I think he was one of the arrested bears), Val Wade (who, of course, climbed to the top of the mine headframe), Sequoia (as some kind of devil goddess and as a "60s Free Spirit"), Darryl Cherney (as Eraserhead--check out that hair!), John Patterson, Brian Gaffney (Directing Traffic!), Karen Pickett, Mokai, Bob Stern, Tim Coleman as hippie ranter ... And I even got seen in several places, raising a fist among the marchers and wearing a blue monkeywrenching bomber long sleeve t-shirt that "we" gave to Don Hodel at Hetch Hetchy Damn a few months later when we couldn't fiind any clean ones to give to him and Dianne Feinstein. And then Michelle Miller, Janaka (who would come back two years later with Bodhi Seed as Emu and tour Turtle Island as The Wallys) and I sing Bill Oliver's song "Holes" with Bill and Glen Waldeck, a shot they used over and over! I met John Hollenhorst at the rendezvous, and hung out with him quit a bit, pointing him to good interviews, and straightening him out on things like biocentrism, Deep Ecology, Miss Ann Thropy's "Hooray AIDS!" letter, "No Compromise," etc. So after the RRR I contacted the southern Utah news stations, who put me in touch with copying services, and $80 later I had these four clips. Unfortunately those tapes were destroyed in the 1991 Oakland Firestorm. But I had made a copy as part of a compilation to show in the reception area at a Portland EF! event i 1990, and that copy was part of the tapes I rescued from the fire. This and over 300 hours of similarly invaluable video of Earth First! culture that I have shot and collected since 1985 (along with a ton of cassette albums and other audio material) is now very aged and at risk of becoming unplayable. This is the single greatest archive of its kind in the world. In fact, there is nothing at all like it in the world. Most of it is now over twenty years old on tapes that deteriorate at fifteen years. I am trying to professionally digitize it all. If you would like to help me with that effort, please let me know. If you can help with a contribution of money or expertise, you can also reach me at Andy Caffrey P.O. Box 324 Redway, CA 95560

Debate Over Uranium Mining Continues
The debate over plans to increase uranium mining near the Grand Canyon continues. Congressman Tom O’Halleran hosted a town hall meeting in Flagstaff on Thursday to gather local input on the controversial plan. Local elected officials and tribal leaders met with O’Halleran to address concerns about different aspects related to uranium mining policies. Havasupai Council Member Carletta Tilousi says the meeting gave the opportunity to express concerns about how the plan would impact Grand Canyon’s water, animals, and human life. Alicyn Gitlin from the Sierra Club says that the land needs more protection than the 2012 mining moratorium provides because it is the ancestral homeland of so many of the region’s people. A key concern with Flagstaff was a plan which would allow the transport of uranium ore through northern Arizona. After the meeting, O’Halleran invited citizens to speak and one local activist challenged him to sponsor a bill to clean up more than 500 abandoned uranium mines on the Navajo reservation.

The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments.
