How foreign mining companies take advantage of weak mining laws to degrade our communities and the environment.

Mr. Featherstone will share with us how foreign mining companies are planning to destroy precious public lands in Arizona and how Arizona’s weak laws allow this to happen. He will focus on Oak Flat, Rosemont, and other places in danger, and show how mining companies are planning this destruction. Roger will also share with us what is being done, and what can be done about it.

Doors open at 9:00 am for optional buffet breakfast ($5 donation) and socializing. Presentation begins at 10:00 am.
