The federal government just released a draft environmental impact statement for the proposed Pebble mine, an action that pushes the project that much closer to decimating one of the most thriving sockeye salmon fisheries in the world.
Putting a mine in a healthy, vital watershed that supports jobs, communities, and the way of life of Alaska Native people who have lived in and taken care of the region for thousands of years violates their human rights and threatens the social, cultural, and economic health of Alaska.
A similar trammeling of human rights continues in the Arctic, where the push to exploit sacred land in the Arctic Refuge threatens the Gwich’in people and their source of food and the foundation of their culture.
Oil and gas extraction in the Arctic would harm migrating, nesting, birthing, and nursing animals, including the Porcupine Caribou Herd, shorebirds that migrate to all continents, and the endangered polar bear. Roads, pipelines, heavy equipment and industrial activity would harm the interconnected waterways and landscapes.
We use the law to hold up the public’s voice and to demand accountability from agencies and industry. We hold those who make decisions and execute them accountable to the law.
