“Southeast Arizona Land Exchange”
Thousands more will now die is this still what our government wants?
The National Defense Authorization Act,2015
A proposal in Section 3003, titled
“Southeast Arizona Land Exchange”,
is opposed by many Native Americans, including the 57 member tribes of The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, and by the Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Association.
This proposal would permit a subsidiary of the Rio Tinto mining conglomerate, Resolution Copper Co., to acquire 2,400 acres of the Tonto National Forest, which is considered sacred for the San Carlos Apache Tribe, for purposes of copper mining.
