OVER 3,000 ABANDONED, TOXIC URANIUM MINES IN MONTANA, WYOMING, NORTH DAKOTA, SOUTH DAKOTA AND COLORADO ALONE


There are 3,272 abandoned uranium mines and prospects located in just four states; Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Colorado. The consequences of uranium mining that last practically forever is explained by Charmaine White Face, a member of the Oglala band of the Great Sioux Nation in the video above. None of these mines had permission to operate from the Indian tribes, who are supposedly in control of this area and have sovereign nation rights.

But then again, the US government and corporate industrial complex pretty much does whatever it wants to any foreign country, including violating their airspace and assassinating people at will. Doing much the same thing here in the US would not be that hard to do, especially if they have few votes, no voice, no lobbying money and no representative that cares about them. Why not sacrifice them in the name of; pick a justification; national security, top secret projects, huge money, corporate profits, etc.. 

MANY TOXIC HEAVY METAL RADIOACTIVE POISONS FOUND IN ABANDONED MINING PITS AND PILES


Toxic, radioactive substances found in just one of these open pit mine areas includes arsenic, molybdenum, radium, thorium, uranium. These radioactive, toxic substances take the form of dust which travels with the wind for hundreds of miles. These same radioactive elements travel great distances in water runoff which goes into the nearest river or water supply, such as the Colorado river. These radioactive elements also end up going into the groundwater which serves as drinking water for large numbers of people.

Legacy Of Uranium Mining Continues To Destroy Indigenous Communities
Introduction by Crystal Zevon
For me and my nation, the Great Sioux Nation, this is genocide. Studies of cancer rates by the U. S. Indian Health Service show that the highest cancer rates in the country are in the Northern Great Plains. This region is also the last homeland we have. It was promised to us in the last treaty we made with the United States, the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868. Everyone knows the rest of the story, even though the treaty is still legal today. We never gave permission for any of this mining to happen in our Treaty territory. Our reservations are just prisoner of war camps.

RADIOACTIVE DUST BLOWS OVER MOUNT RUSHMORE AND NEARBY TOWNS

One of these large open pit abandoned uranium mines is located within miles of Mount Rushmore. That radioactive dust blows over this US monument as well as the town nearby, and it is found in the water that tourists drink; which is radioactive.

The radioactive uranium being breathed in by residents and millions of visitors who come to see the US Presidents in rock, is very symbolic of what is happening to this nation; invisible poison is covering not only the surface but migrating underneath the soil. The poison uranium is inhaled and drinkable. No one escapes from the dust. No one escapes from the water; not the residents, and not the clueless tourists. 

HoTaters March 13, 2015 "Wow, no wonder the CPM counts and RadNet counts (when we can see them) are SOOOOO high in Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado. Sheesh. How awful. Why is it the Native Americans or First Nations peoples, Aborgines, and similar peoples ALWAYS get screwed when uranium mining, nuclear testing, dumping, mine abandonment, or whatever, happens? We'll be happy to write bogus treaties for you giving you rights to the land, except when we need it as part of our global garbage heap, or for purposes of resource extraction."


CANCER MORTALITY RATE IN THIS AREA IS THE HIGHEST IN THE COUNTRY


The cancer mortality rates for this area are the highest in the country.



DRINKING WATER AND WELLS CONTAMINATED WITH RADIATION 


rogerthatAugust 11, 2015 Prof. investigates uranium pollution
Little data exists on how mines have affected health of Navajo Nation
By Marielle Dent 08/09/15

With the development of atomic power at the end of World War II came a demand for uranium, a radioactive ore of which large deposits can be found in the Navajo Nation, which spans parts of Arizona, Utah and northwestern New Mexico.

Between 1944 and 1986 about 4 million tons of uranium ore was extracted from these lands, and many Navajo people worked in the mines and lived near them, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Today, more than 500 abandoned mines are left behind, and many homes and sources of drinking water contain elevated levels of radioactivity.

Navajo water contamination more horrific than Flint Michigan's
January 25, 2016 By Brenda Norrell   brendanorrell@gmail.com

The water contamination on the Navajo Nation is more horrific than in Flint, Michigan. However, the contamination continues because of the racism in the United States which disregards the contamination in Indian country. The collapsed media in Indian country, and the biased mainstream media, fail to expose it.

Today, an Indigenous delegation begins a series of protests and events in Washington D.C. to expose the radioactive pollution in Indian country. The Navajo Nation's water has been poisoned since the 1950s by uranium mining, then by coal mining, and dirty coal-fired power plants.

Navajo water has long been contaminated by Peabody Coal mining on Black Mesa, uranium spills, strewn radioactive tailing from the Cold War uranium mining, and recently the EPA's poisoning of the Animas and San Juan Rivers.

UNITED STATES TURNING INTO ONE HUGE CHERNOBYL EXCLUSION ZONE


This area is called the US Chernobyl, and a genocide is happening here. How and why? Dr. K. Kearfott PhD, a nuclear physics professor from the University of Michigan went into this area of the country and found that radiation levels in areas visited with students were higher than those in the evacuated zones around Fukushima. 

The Fukushima evacuation zone radiation levels were higher than those around Chernobyl. The radiation levels in this area are higher than even the Fukushima evacuation zones.

These people are asking for the US government (or the nuclear industry) to clean up and remediate these 2,000 plus Superfund sites, before any more uranium mines are opened. This seems reasonable to us, what do you think? 

Does it sound like the nuclear industry is being responsible and protecting the health of the communities inside the United States?


STORY FROM LOCAL RESIDENT


Via bowling December 27, 2014 "... I am so sick. I was raised in triple threat area; downwinder, underground nuclear detonations at the headwaters of the Colorado river by Aspen Colorado of all places. 

Finally... shitloads of uranium mines, mill tailings going into the Colorado River. I would say the Colorado river and Lake Powell are among of the most radioactive water bodies in the world. Why do we allow these criminals to build nuclear reactors in places like japan? 

There was a huge uranium mill in the heart of my town. They will never clean up the radioactive mess they have created. We are floating on radioactive ooze."

MORE TREATIES BEING BROKEN, EVEN TODAY, LAND TAKEN BY FORCE FROM INDIANS WHO LEGALLY OWN IT


PlowboyGrownUp March 13, 2015  It goes on and on, breaking of treaties "In a landslide eighty-nine to eleven vote the senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2015. The 585 billion dollar defense bill had some unusual riders attached to it causing a major fuss, namely the “Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act” which will remove Native Americans off of their sacred grounds so that the Australian–English mining firm Rio Tinto can mine the copper deposits underneath. The act will force many of the Apache tribe off of their “protected lands” so that foreign companies may profit." They just attach a 'rider' to a bill that is sure to pass…

REP. MATT SHEA ENGAGED IN DOMESTIC TERRORISM AGAINST US GOVERNMENT, WHICH IS DEFINED AS TREASON


Washington Rep. Matt Shea engaged in domestic terrorism against U.S., says state House report | The Seattle Times
State Rep. Matt Shea planned and participated in domestic terrorism against the United States before and during the armed takeover at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, an investigation commissioned by the Washington state House found.

The 108-page report found that beginning in November 2015, Shea, working with militia leader Ammon Bundy, helped “in the planning and preparation” of the Malheur takeover, a six-week conflict in which dozens of armed protesters occupied the refuge in rural Eastern Oregon. The standoff ended after one protester was shot and killed and dozens were arrested.

“Representative Shea, as a leader in the Patriot Movement, planned, engaged in and promoted a total of three armed conflicts of political violence against the United States Government in three states outside the state of Washington over a three-year period,” according to the report released Thursday. “In one conflict Representative Shea led covert strategic pre-planning in advance of the conflict.”

SUMMARY

The genocide of the indigenous peoples who lived in the Americas continues unabated, but is now morphing into a corporate sponsored form. Small desperate communities are split into factions with the promise of high paying long term jobs and 'benefits' to the community. Sometimes the huge corporations will even promise a new park or other community facility to help drive a wedge in between those trying to protect the land, environment, and future generations, and those who are desperate for the money. 

Most often, the lure of easy and big money wins over the majority and these huge polluting mining and other resource extraction companies are voted in. The residents of the Indian communities are provided with dirty, toxic jobs that harm their health, such as uranium mining. Once the resources are extracted, these huge corporations either declare bankruptcy, change names or just move on to 'greener' pastures in the next small town or village that they can profit from and destroy on the way out. There is zero focus on seven future generations, and these communities are so desperate and poverty stricken that any offer of money is usually accepted, despite the false promises.
