Building Momentum in Resistance to Grand Canyon Uranium Mining & Transport Photos by Dustin Wero | Instagram: darth_wero In late 2016 Indigenous anti-nuke & sacred sites organizers decided something had to be done to confront the threat of radioactive uranium ore transport from the Grand Canyon to the White Mesa Mill. In December of 2016, volunteer-based Haul No! was formed to raise awareness, organize, and take action to protect sacred lands, water, and our health from this toxic threat. Haul No! got to work right away researching, creating outreach materials, exploring and advocating policy changes, and planning for direct action to stop the transport. In March 2017, Energy Fuels Inc. (EFI), the owner of Canyon Mine and White Mesa Mill (the only commercially operating uranium processing plant in the US),…

https://youtu.be/34BAmA4Ni2o Energy Fuels Incorporated is threatening to start uranium mining on sacred Indigenous Lands just miles from the Grand Canyon. Join our awareness & action tour to confront this toxic threat. The U.S. Forest Service has permitted toxic uranium mining based on an outdated environmental impact statement. The Havasupai Nation & Environmental groups have sued to Forest Service to stop the development. Although a court decision is expected any day, Energy Fuels is recklessly rushing to start mining. 12 trucks a day hauling 30 tons each of highly radioactive ore could be coming through our communities. We say, “Haul No!” Protect the Grand Canyon, sacred sites, and precious water. #haulno #stopcanyonmine The Haul No! tour is free and open to the public.
