"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.

Views: 2052 roncheeita
This 1958 color film shows the Navajo Nation of the 1960s, with a postscript from the 1970s (:13). It’s “A Line on America” film presentation of “A People Between Two Worlds” (:50), produced by Francis and Helen Line. This largest Indian tribe lives on a reservation mostly in Arizona into New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado (1:18). Sheep provides resources and an income (1:50-2:08). Most of the 15 million acres are too barren, mountainous, or heavily forested (2:10-2:34). Only 4 acres in 1,000 have enough moisture for crops (2:41). Life revolves around the hogan home and ancient customs (2:48-3:42). Trading posts provide a place to barter (3:43-4:00), including pawning turquoise jewelry, worn regardless of the task (4:01-4:22). A baby is shown on a cradleboard (4:25-4:34). In spring, wind creates sandstorms (5:14-5:30). In summer, flash flooding destroys roads and bridges (5:32-5:49). The roads are hard on buckboard wheels (6:11). A woman weaves a colorful patterned rug (6:36-7:04). New resources include oil pumps, natural gas wells, and uranium mines. Processing plants built at the edge of the reservation provide jobs and royalty payments (7:05-8:15). Students attend school (8:20-8:30). Report cards are often signed by a parent’s thumbprint (8:30-8:40). In response, the US government built elementary (up to 6th grade) boarding schools where children live for 9 months, such as at Shiprock (8:43-9:40). The government also built experimental trailer schools on the reservation with non-Navajo teachers (9:50-11:20). A bathroom trailer provides new experiences of running water, flush toilets, and toothbrushes (11:31-11:50). Before class, a breakfast of cold cow’s milk and biscuits is served (11:53-12:22); a happy lamb is bottle-fed (12:26-12:37); and the Pledge of Allegiance is given (12:40-12:52). The school teaches about the US government; health; prayer before a lunch that uses knives and forks; and gives out vitamins (12:53-13:35). They learn to read, speak, and sing English (13:36-13:54). A member of the Navajo Tribal Council visits the school, driving what may be a 1955 GMC Suburban carrier pickup truck (13:57-14:07). He talks to the classroom in Navajo, explaining the coming changes (14:09-14:20). An old Navajo woman is shown (14:45). The Postscript and Forecast (16:52) shows power lines across the desert providing electricity (16:59-17:12). Other changes include coin-operated laundries (17:20), shopping center supermarkets (17:27), a 1974 Navajo newspaper (17:33), water towers (17:39), and factories (17:44). The film predicts a population of 200,000 Navajos by the 1980s (341,128 at the 2015 census). The traditional hogan house stands in contrast to modern frame structures in housing communities (18:1-18:42). Roads are being paved and interstate highways built (18:51-19:00). The Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River provides new water resources via Lake Powell (19:23). Rainbow Natural Bridge and others (19:33-1944) provide tourist income. The Great Seal of the Navajo Tribe represents its new tribal government, often called the Navajo Nation (19:47-20:00). Strip mining for coal and power plant pollution bring issues (20:15-20:45). Public schools have been built, including the Rough Rock Demonstration School and a community college, both run by the Navajo (20:48-21:39).

Questions from Students about Uranium Mining on the Navajo Nation.
Ken Gale's Commemoration of the Navajo Uranium Mining Disaster
As an introduction and prelude to a forum about the dangers of the Indian Point Nuclear Power plant located North of NYC, Ken Gale remembers an activist, Jacob Aftel, for his wisdom and advice for activists and two very important occurrances in the history of nuclear activity: The Navajo Uranium Mining Disaster and the first Atomic bomb test and explosion. Both occurred on July 16. One in 1945 and the other in 1979. Following Ken’s commemoration three speakers talked and answered questions concerning the dangers of Indian Point. The Forum is Titled: Indian Point: Danger on the Hudson and was sponsored by NYC Safe Energy Campaign (NYCSEC); Shut Down Indian Point Now (SDIPN) and Stop the Algonquin Pipeline Extension (SAPE) and a number of co-sponsors. The presenters can be heard at the below links, as well as, on upcoming episodes of Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN).

2015 Navajo Protest Parade March and Protest
On Saturday, September 12, a collective of Diné community members and Apache allies marched in the Navajo Nation Fair's parade in protest of Ann Kirkpatrick's recent political tactics involving Indigenous lands. Kirkpatrick, who is currently running against John McCain for a seat in the U.S. senate, introduced legislation and supported the opening of sacred lands to the Rio Tinto mining company despite heavy opposition from her constituents. Considering the list of negative impacts this would have for Apache sacred sites, her presence in the parade directly conflicted with the fair's theme, “Protecting Mother Earth for Future Generations.” Kirkpatrick's involvement also shows a growing theme of U.S. politicians wedging their way into sovereign Indigenous governments by using political tactics to both increase their legislative victories and continue perpetuating institutionalized genocide. McCain, who has a known close affiliation with mineral and energy companies, also recently faced criticism from an intergenerational group of Diné community members regarding his visit to the Navajo Nation in August. His participation in the Navajo Code Talkers Celebration and engagement in a private meeting showed intentions of continuing to engage in corporate interests at the expense of Indigenous lives. This ultimately designates Kirkpatrick, McCain, and other U.S. politicians as the enemies of Indigenous peoples. Note: To help create a positive impact for the community, consider supporting the Water for Sanders initiative. This will bring safe, clean water to Sanders community members who recently learned their water wells are contaminated with uranium at more than twice the safe consumption limit.

Diné Confront McCain in Window Rock, AZ
Window Rock, AZ — On August 14, 2015 dozens of Diné (Navajo) took action to resist U.S. Senator John McCain’s attempts to steal precious water and desecrate sacred lands. McCain had private meetings scheduled at the Navajo Nation capitol with Diné and state politicians which included discussion of the controversial Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado River water rights settlement. Nearly a dozen Diné youth took action by chanting and linking arms in a roving sit-in at the Nation Nation museum where the meeting was to be held. The group was supported by dozens of other Diné community advocates who held signs such as, “John McCain = Indian Killer” and “Save Oak Flat.” “Walking through our homeland has given us a deeper understanding of protecting the sacred, defending our homeland.” stated Nihígaal bee Iiná participants who were a significant part of the action on Friday, “Even if that means disrupting secret meetings with crooked politicians. We will no longer sit back, we will protect our water, land and livelihood for children, our grandchildren and honor our ancestors by any means necessary! WATER IS LIFE!” At one point state and Tribal police blocked demonstrators from leaving the museum building. An elder intervened opening the door allowing the group to pursue after McCain’s convoy yelling, “Get off our land!” Police blocked access to the airport where McCain quickly departed. Despite heavy law enforcement presence, no arrests were made. McCain has long established himself as an enemy of Indigenous lifeways. From furthering forced relocation on Black Mesa for coal mining (S.1003), political support for ski area desecration of the Holy San Francisco Peaks, to his most recent attack against San Carlos Apache Holy lands at Oak Flat for copper mining, McCain has long placed corporate interests over Diné and other Indigenous Nation’s survival. In the face of ecological and climate crises, McCain and a handful of Navajo political collaborators continue to further extreme pollution from fracking, coal mining, and Coal-Fired power plants operating on the Navajo Nation. These actions appears to contradict other ecologically responsible measures such as the Diné Natural Resources Protection Act of 2005, which banned uranium mining and processing on Navajo lands, the 5 Year plan to clean up abandoned uranium mines, and the recently declared a state of emergency due to the Gold King mine disaster which threatens sacred and vital water ways such as the San Juan and Colorado. This statement was issued on the day of the action by Collective voice of those united in solidarity, “NO MORE ALLOWING state or federal politicians and the corporations they represent entrance into our homelands. Those who are responsible for our people being poisoned, starved, kept in poverty and removed from our sacred territories, are not welcomed here!! We will take back our power and restore our homelands, take care of our water, protect our people and our sacred sites, and mentor a new generation of youth that will change this paradigm of exploitation and greed!” -INDIGENOUS ACTION MEDIA http://www.indigenousaction.org/dine-confront-john-mccain-in-action-to-protect-water-and-sacred-sites/

Canyon Mine is located just miles from the Grand Canyon and right next to Red Butte, a sacred place for Havasupai. Members of the Diné and Havasupai Nations spoke about the long-term detrimental effects uranium mining has had and continues to inflict on their communities. After the rally, we attended the City Council Meeting and numerous community members spoke to the Council about why they should pass a resolution to stop uranium transport in addition to legal actions that could be taken such as an ordinance.

Power Struggles: The Proposed Desert Rock Power Plant
Although the Navajo Nation Council became the first tribal government to approve green jobs legislation by establishing a Navajo Green Economy Commission and approving an account to fund the effort, the Council is still keeping alive projects that utilize natural resources like the proposed Desert Rock Energy Project, a 1,500-megawatt coal-burning power plant that Navajo President Joe Shirley has said would be one of the "cleanest" coal-burning plants in the nation. But if built, this power plant -- whose electricity would go to Las Vegas and Phoenix -- will contribute 12.7 million tons of CO2 into an area where two of the worst polluting plants in the country, the Four Corners Power Plant and the San Juan Generating Station, already exist. Many of the local residents have no running water or electricity themselves, but are being toxified by these existing plants and mining operations. An excessive 1.4 billion gallons of water would be used annually for the proposed Desert Rock plant in an already arid climate. (In the western part of the Navajo Nation, Peabody Coal Company's abusive practices have nearly emptied the Navajo Aquifer, yet Peabody wants to construct two additional lines for coal slurrying through Hopi & Navajo lands, and tap into the Coconino Aquifer.) In other parts of the US, mining companies have water testing and liners in place for their depositories of spent coal, called fly ash. On the Navajo Nation, these fly ash depositories sit in unlined pits leeching untested runoff water into the minimal water supply the Navajo have to live on, or blowing into the atmosphere. Selenium, nuclear isotopes, sulfur dioxide, & nitrogen dioxide (all components of acid rain), and 29 million tons of CO2 are emitted from these existing plants. Adding yet another coal plant will increase these numbers by 43%. Since the 1950s, the mining companies' and Nuclear Regulatory Commission's legacy of irresponsibility has left land and water toxic on the Navajo Nation and a population riddled with cancer and birth defects that still appear today. The Jackpile Mine, near the NM-AZ border is the largest open pit uranium mine in the world, and the site of the worst radioactive spill in history. In an area of 55% unemployment and 65% poverty rate, the Desert Rock proponents, Navajo Nation President Shirley and the Navajo Nation Council promise that impoverished Navajo people will experience "untold economic benefit". The council has made all the necessary approvals for construction of the Desert Rock coal plant to go forward, but the US Environmental Protection Agency has asked an appeals board to remand the air permit it granted. It's necessary to move away from what has greatly contributed to the Navajo government's general fund -- royalties from uranium, coal, oil and gas. With the grinding poverty on the reservation on one side of the equation and their reverence for their heartland on the other side, the Navajos face a dilemma: Should they capitalize on the opportunities emanating from the Desert Rock power plant and accept the risk of cultural disharmony and environmental damage in the heart of their venerated Dinétah? Or should they hold true to their traditions and values and reject the plant? Navajo David Nez summarized the issue for Jeff Conant, writing for the CorpWatch Internet site, "Is the goal of the Navajo people to get rich?" asked Nez. "Because 'quality of life', even if you're poor, means clean air, clean water, beautiful scenery."

dance against uranium mining
Dance by members of BUMP (ban uranium mining permanently) outside the Australian uranium conference in Fremantle as part of the protest against uranium mining. Several companies are trying to start uranium mining in WA, a state where there is still no uranium mining activity and it should be kept this way. The rally was against uranium mining for various reasons, namely: - Aboriginal people don't want it on their land - It is used for nuclear weapons - The waste stays radioactive for many years after the mining has ceased - Radiation leads to many health problems, some of which are only discovered in future generations. - It causes massive damage to the environment - Australia can meet all it's energy needs with renewable energy, thus discounting any reason to use nuclear power.
