Act to protect the Black Hills from Uranium Mining

The sacred Black Hills are under attack by the proposed Dewey-Burdock uranium mining project. This threatens our aquifers, drinking water and our rivers which our plants and wildlife also depend on. Since the Black Hills is still legally under dispute for violations of both the Treaties of Fort Laramie and this project goes against the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the state or the feds can’t legally assign these water & mining rights to this Canadian company, but they are doing it! The Oglala Sioux Tribal Council has been given till the end of the month to review that Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS), but the state has already submitted this application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which has issued the cutoff date of Jan 10th, 2013 for anyone filing an opposing petition to this application. Another words, the state is trying to make sure the Native voices are silenced by fast tracking this behind everyone’s back to the NRC before the tribal council has a chance to weigh in on this. No technology that we have available to us today can guarantee radiation contamination won’t occur! This will destroy 11,000 acres of pristine wilderness over the next 15 to 20 years, not to mention all the health issues they will be exposing everyone to. We must not allow the state of South Dakota to sell us out and silence our concerns for the sake of corporate greed.

Here is a web site everyone should look at http://powertechexposed.com/ . Contacts the NRC by Jan 10th, 2013 tell them of your concerns about contamination of our lands, people and wildlife. Tell them the SEIS does not take into consideration the impact on our sacred lands, contamination of our aquifers in which our people, land and wildlife depend on and that we are not willing to risk the health of our children and family members for anything. Educate yourself on the In-Situ process that will be used in this project http://www.epa.gov/radiation/docs/tenorm/402-r-08-005-voli/402-r-08-005-v1-ch4.pdf

Last but not least we must all unite to fight this by attending the meetings and peaceful protests to protect our sacred Black Hills. There are people from the EPA, the US Forest Service and even a Senior State Biologist who opposes this project, but the only way we are going to prevent this is by uniting and showing a force with numbers. Attend the public meeting in Hot Springs, SD Jan 10th, 2013 7:00 PM at the American Legion Hall. The future is in our hands we must not allow this to happen!
