Stop the Proposed Pebble Mine sign now

Whereas the Bristol Bay in Southwest Alaska is one of the few remaining pristine habitats left on earth;
Whereas the Bristol Bay is home to the largest wold sockeye salmon fishery;
Whereas the Bristol Bay is the richest commercial wild salmon fishery in the world, generating $320 million dollars a year in commercial fishing and employing over 12, 500 people;
Whereas the Bristol Bay generates $60 million dollars in revenue from sports fishing;
Whereas, subsistence hunting, gathering and fishing is vital to the subsistence way of life of Alaska Native people in the region
Whereas the proposed Pebble Mine would be the largest mine in North America, would create 9 billion tons of waste, would require the construction of a 100 mile road, would use more water per year than the city of Anchorage consumes, and that contamination of the water is imminent.
Whereas the permitting process has never turned down a mining permit and does not inspire any confidence for protecting the region's environment:

Whereas environmental record of the mining industry, including Anglo-American, is dismal:

Whereas, fish are a renewable and sustainable resource and mining is not;

Whereas, we take seriously everyone's moral obligation to stop cultural genocide:

Be it therefore resolved that we oppose the Proposed Pebble Mine in order to preserve the region's economic, environmental, and cultural survival.

    I am decidedly against the Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay. Our salmon runs are far more valuable, as well as a renewable resource than anything that can possibly be gained by mining. Pebble is highly likely to be irresponsible to the environment and the commu

    A mine of the magnitude could have disasterous conserquences for the history, cutlure, and fisheries in Bristol Bay. At a time when salmon populations are on the brink of survival globally, Bristol Bay represetns the closest thing we have to a sustainable
