Stop Uranium Mining at the Grand Canyon - August 20th 2013 Stop Uranium Mining at the Grand Canyon - August 20th 2013 Stop Uranium Mining at the Grand Canyon - August 20th 2013 Where: Federal District Court, 800 Washington St, Phoenix, AZ 85007 Google Map

When: August 20, 2013 at 9am - 12pm

Protest outside federal District Court against Kaibab National Forest, who illegally have allowed Canada-based Energy Fuels to begin digging a uranium mine 15 miles south of the rim, using a 27-year-old Environmental Impact Statement. They have ignored regulations in the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), requiring them to consult with tribes when a sacred area, a traditional cultural property, has been designated, as at Red Butte, and they are ignoring new evidence that the uranium mine will inevitably contaminate the massive aquifer that feeds the Colorado River and its many springs.

CANCELLED!! The federal district court Judge Campbell has decided to rule on the injunction against the Grand Canyon uranium Mine on the basis of the written documents alone, and has CANCELLED the oral arguments public hearing set for Tues, Aug 20, so we are canceling the DEMO as well, since nothing is happening in Phoenix that day. We do not know when he will rule on the injunction, but we will keep you posted on all developments. Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who supported the organizing of this event, and to everyone who shared it on their networks! We will keep fighting!
