French translation by Christine Prat

Hello Reyes,
I am a member of the Navajo Nation and lived out here all my life and our resources have been contaminated by Coal mining in the Black Mesa area , by Uranium mining in the New Mexico areas and some in the Arizona areas by Oil and Gas development too, in the New Mexico and Utah areas of our reservation lands and EPA has not done any thing to help us and why is that? We demand that these site need to get clean up plans to start happening as soon as possible. We have been concerned with these Environmental problems that are brought on the reservation lands since the 1940's and on the this day. We demand that the Environmental Justice Policies be applied to our Homelands and we Demand all fossil fuel developer be held accountable.

Thank you, Louise Benally
