Federal Coal Leasing Program is a Joke in 2015
By Anna Rondon, Dine'
Ya at eeh, Greetings
My name is Anna Rondon, I am of the Towering House People, Kinya annii and Nakai Dine. I am writing to express my opinion on your Federal Coal Leasing Program as well as your due diligence in protecting the United States people is grossly negligent in meeting your own mission statement.
“The DOI protects and manages the Nation’s natural resources and cultural heritage; provides scientific and other information about those resources; and honors the Nation’s trust responsibilities or special commitments to American Indians, Alaska Natives, and affiliated island communities.”
My children’s generation and the many generations to follow us have a direct duty to protect our ways of life. I come from a family of warriors who fought in World War II and Viet Nam. Today, I fight for my Dine lands and others tribes around the world. To defend what little we have left. There we 60 comments and all but 3 support the proposed changes in this fouled leasing program that robs the tax payers.
We know the federal government dictates to our Navajo Nation corporate government, Speaker Lorenzo Bates and his cronies only listen to coal companies and does not even consult with our own Dine people. He runs off to Crow Country and tells Senate Committee that the environmental laws on coal are not fair. This is violates Dine Fundamental Laws Title 1 and the Navajo Civil Rights Act. We have lost equal protection and due process, we carry the burden of health impacts, our people are being sacrificed and the silence will be broken and told around the world how Navajo Nation is a front for Peabody, NGS, SRP and APS. All energy thugs and are worst that street gangsters in collaboration with McCain and other GOP who have shady connections with mining companies.
Change is here and our youth know and will expose you all.
