    This is an all ages event.

     

    WHY:            Proposed uranium mines at the Grand Canyon threaten our Northern Arizona communities. Not only do these mines directly threaten the Ecoregion of the Grand Canyon, they further corporate attacks on community health, environment and sacred places.
    Uranium mining companies have proposed to transport uranium directly through the streets of Flagstaff and the Western Navajo and Hopi lands.
    Currently there is a 30-day comment period for public input on the US Dept of Interior’s proposal to withdraw 1 million acres of land in the Grand Canyon watershed. The withdrawal would help to protect the area from new mining claims for 20 years.
