A letter to the Arizona Daily Star

“Kirsten Sinema has introduced legislation to allow mining companies to occupy and construct on land without having valid mineral claims. This would provide a way for Hudbay to get around the federal court decision that barred dumping on Forest land without first demonstrating valid mineral rights.”
Luanne Gegeanis says
Enough already! People, wake up and smell the coffee! When do we stop giving Arizona (and the U.S.) away to outsiders that will DESTROY our Environment, waste millions of gallons of precious WATER for MORE mines! These are not renewable resources. Once our Aquaifer is empty it’s done. Hudbay has already scared the Santa Rita Mountains South of Tucson with their excavating, said they will replenish our water supply from the Colorado River! If there’s no water to take from the Colorado River, where will thousands of people in these communities get water?
