‘U.S. Senators Jon Kyl and John McCain, both Republicans representing Arizona, will visit Tuba City on Thursday, April 5, 2012, to persuade leaders of the Navajo and Hopi Nations to give up their aboriginal and treaty-guaranteed priority Water Rights by accepting a “Settlement Agreement” written to benefit some of the West’s most powerful mining and energy corporations.Kyl and McCain introduced Senate Bill 2109 – the “Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado River Water Rights Settlement Act of 2012” – on February 14, 2012, the 100th anniversary of the state’s admission to the union.
The bill is on a fast track to give Arizona corporations and water interests a “100th birthday present” that will close the door forever on Navajo and Hopi food and water sovereignty, security and self-reliance. In the House of Representatives, the bill is under H.R. 4067 and is sponsored by Rep. Ben Quayle.’
This is ugly and is going on as you read these words and watch the video. I found out about this because I am in contact with Lakota activists. But I live in the Philippines. If you live in America and believe this is wrong get hold of your elected representatives and tell them to stop this horror. Please and thank-you.
