G-Tac Bulk Sampling Tyler Forks #Penokee Hills - Trees already marked. #NoPenokeeMine #IdleNoMore #BadRiver

G-Tac Bulk Sampling Tyler Forks Penokee Hills Michael Matusewic

See the streams that are within steps of the bulk sampling mining site that flows toTyler Forks near Upson, Wisconsin. Tyler Forks flows into the Bad River Watershed, which flows into Lake Superior. Poisons from a taconite mine at this site will end up poisoning Lake Superior. Video taken September 17, 2013. It is wetter here most of the year due to snow, snow melts, and Spring rains.

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

The Trees have been marked in blue already when the permit has NOT been issued yet. Makes you wonder, aye. - #NoPenokeeMine #IdleNoMore #BadRiver #LCOHEC - "...See the streams that are within steps of the bulk sampling mining site that flows toTyler Forks near Upson, Wisconsin.

Chris Cline made a fortune in coal mines; now he's vying against the Chippewa to dig a giant iron ore mine in Wisconsin.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

The "proposed by Gogebic Taconite, which Cline bought a few years ago, the mine would be built in the far northern reaches of Wisconsin near the town of Mellen, in an area crossed by rivers and streams that flow north into Lake Superior," would indefinitely pollute the Bad River Watershed, Kakagon Sloughs, and kill the Wild rice (Manoomin), and fish, and plants and trees surrounded by started with blasting a HUGE (world's largest taconite) HOLE into Mother Earth = #GENOCIDE. #IdleNoMore! #NoPenokeeMine #Ojibwe #TreatyRights

Tribes: Feds have no choice but to stop mining in Penokees | Superior Telegram | Superior, Wisconsin

Tribes: Feds have no choice but to stop mining in Penokees | Superior Telegram | Superior, Wisconsin | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it

Tribal leaders in northern Wisconsin are requesting federal government intervention to stop mining activity in the Penokees. They’re doing that because they say the clock is running out to protect the ceded territory.

 

One factor is a Senate bill that could make 5½ square miles in mining areas off-limits to the public. Bad River Tribal Chairman Mike Wiggins says this would kick tribal biologists off the area they’re obligated to protect.

“We’ve seen enough now to understand that state legislators are willing to pressure scientists, are willing to try and restrict access to publicly accessible places that are critical for the data and the objective data-gathering and analysis that are going to be necessary to paint a picture of this eco-system,” he said.

 

Six tribal leaders ask in the letter to President Obama to stop mining activities to protect the ceded territory. But Republican State Senator Tom Tiffany of Hazelhurst, one of the sponsors of the “off-limits” bill, says this is not a place for the feds.

 

“Well, I sure hope the President doesn’t come in and usurp the state’s ability to manage its natural resources because that’s something the federal government has always delegated to the states,” Tiffany said.

But Wiggins says the difference is, this is state land in the ceded territory, so the U.S. government must act.

 

“In real time right now, we know what we need and we need intervention because of all of the efforts to obscure and cloud over GTac’s activities in the hydrology and the science of this site,” he said. “We expect from a trust responsibility perspective, we expect the federal government to be there for us and to honor those treaties.”

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Indian Summer Festival organizers asked OLB to bring their light boards to this year’s festival. They worked with OLB to develop the series of water-related messages in response mostly to this past year’s direct attack on the watershed of the Bad River Tribe in the pristine Penokee Hills, the site of a future massive mountain-top removal iron-ore mine recently passed by the GOP controlled Wisconsin Legislature. - #IdleNoMore #lightBrigade #WaterWalkers #NoPenokeeMine #BadRiver See more at: http://occupyriverwest.com/us/olb-at-indian-summer#sthash.zxTGgt7k.dpuf

Mining Company Deploys More Masked Militiamen Against "Eco-Terrorists" | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
Welcome to the scary new world of mining in Scott Walker's Wisconsin.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Mother Jones - Now its time to discuss what Wisconsin did to the environmental protections by relaxing them for the mining company by the Legislator, signed by Gov. Scott Walker - No more tourism, hunting and fishing, as mining drops like a ripple effect ... once there is one, its multipled by 10X - "Basically almost every environmental protection and public health protection you could think of is eliminated under this bill."
