Uranium Mining Hearing in Valentine, NE.
4:00 pm16:00

Uranium Mining Hearing in Valentine, NE.

  • Valentine's Niobrara Lodge

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding hearings on a proposed radioactive uranium mine and proposed waste water disposal wells in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

We need to make it clear to the EPA representatives who will carry a report on the hearings back to D.C. that people oppose uranium mining in the Black Hills and will continue the fight to protect our water until it is won. To do this, we need numbers of people to attend the EPA's hearings and speak out. We want the EPA to be real clear about the fact that they are poking a stick into a wasp's nest by threatening the water in the Black Hills.

The Black Hills are sacred to the Lakota people, and uranium mining leaves radioactive wastes that are dangerous forever. We fought this battle in the late 1970s and early 1980s and kicked some of the largest mining companies in the world out of the Black Hills. Smaller mining companies returned 11 years ago, and this time they not only want to mine directly in one drinking water aquifer, but also to pump their wastes into another aquifer that people use for drinking water. People from the reservations and the towns around the Black Hills have been fighting them since then. Now we need you to take action. Attending the hearings is a good way to get informed, as well as getting active, on the most important water issue of our time in the Black Hills. Protect the Black Hills!

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

  • New York, NY

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration
