Mining Madness: We Need To Fight Open Pit/Mountaintop Removal Mining - Again!
A Post-hearing Update
Many 350 Maine and other environmental activists worked quite hard over the last two years to defeat legislation in support of mountaintop removal in Maine. Now, the exact same mining rules are back at the legislature for reconsideration (LD 146) and a public hearing took place on Wednesday, February 25th at 9:00 a.m. For more information: see this link.
There is still the need to speak out against this "mining madness": please write the Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) Committee ASAP (see a suggested make-it-your-own letter here; being specific about the bill’s flaws vs. just voicing appropriate anti-mining sentiment would be best). Here’s an information link from NRCM and a simple mechanism to contact your individual legislator. And here’s a petition to sign in opposition to the bill.
Please review the Calendar tab for upcoming events (and our 350 Maine Calendar for past and developing events in 2015).
NOTE: if you are interested in hosting a Tar Sands Healing Walk presentation in your area, please contact Lee Chisholm, Sarah Lachance or Hilary Clark. See a video of a 11/23/14 presentation in Damariscotta here.
