This uranium issue is an extremely important one. No company should be doing what they want to do on lands that belong to our people. Haven't the US government and all it's buddies taken enough away from a people struggling to live the lives we all deserve? Haven't they lied enough times? Why can't they take no for an answer? Because they can and because they don't care.
The Oglala lands, the Black Hills, and all the other sacred lands surrounding their reservations are their lands regardless of what some piece of paper says. Just because the government says its their land, doesn't mean it is. And anyway, why would our government, which is supposed to be taking care of it's people, allow them to be poisoned by their own water, and the very air they breath? It never ceases to amaze me, how stupid our government can be... to think a fence can stop something like radiation????????
