Longest walkers and fearlessness

Here's a photo worth taking another look at. The walkers on the Longest Walk northern route stand before Newmont mining in downtown Denver, in solidarity with the Western Shoshone, and Indigenous Peoples all over the world, fighting the gold mining that is destroying their lands and coring out their mountains. Although Newmont had already called the police when this photo was taken on March 24, 2008, the walkers stood resolute and fearless. There were no arrests, and a resolution was delivered to Newmont. It remains a stellar moment. Photo Brenda Norrell
