The Fight for Water & Treaty Rights in the Great Lakes

Support The Bad River – Write to the EPA

Led by The Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, six bands of the Anishinaabeg Territory have sent a letter to the EPA asking them to undertake a 404c process, which would allow them to pre-emptively stop the open pit taconite mine proposed for the Penokee Hills of Wisconsin because of the importance of the resources that it threatens. Letters of support are needed from the public. The letters will be hand delivered to the EPA when the tribes meet with Region 5 Director, Dr. Susan Hedman.

You can find  a sample letter here.

Please send your letters to Bad River by Friday, August 15, 2014.
