New Mexico protests against uranium mining

La Jicarita: Protesters in Santa Fe Say No Uranium Mining http://unoccupyabq.org/2013/06/la-jicarita-protesters-in-santa-fe-say-no-uranium-mining/  27 June 13 La Jicarita: Albuquerque and Santa Fe activists joined an inter-tribal delegation to protest the planned resumption of uranium mining in New Mexico. With organizing help from (un)occupy Albuquerque, the June 25 action began at the New Mexico Mining Association offices, then moved to the New Mexico Mining and Minerals Division where the contingent confronted division director Fernando Martinez in a polite but insistent impromptu dialogue. Moving on to the offices of the Uranium Producers of America, the protesters found the occupants had moved out (not in search of larger premises, we hope). Ending up at the Santa Fe plaza, the activists took part in a call to free imprisoned AIM activist Leonard Peltier and an Idle No More-led round dance around the town’s monument to the Indian Wars.

Reporter Eric Schultz also included audio of many of the speakers, well worth a read, and a listen.
