Next Pebble Mine Virtual Townhall Set For June 30

The following is courtesy of Defend Bristol Bay:

Dear Supporter,

We can’t lie to you, the next few weeks are going to be challenging.

We anticipate that the Army Corps of Engineers will release the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Pebble Mine project in the next few weeks. This is a huge step towards Pebble Mine gaining it’s federal permits and it’s going to take all of us to stop them. That’s why we are hosting another Virtual Townhall. In this Townhall, we will be going over our plan of action for responding to this release and getting everyone prepped to take action when the release happens.

Make sure to join in and help us win this fight!

The Virtual Townhall will be next Tuesday June 30th from 12:00pm – 1:00pm Alaska Time.

Make sure to RSVP for this event to receive instruction on joining the event. You can also follow the event on Facebook, where we will be live streaming the event.

In addition to our Virtual Townhalls, there are plenty of other great resources you can access from the comfort and safety of your home. Below are some links to great films and past Townhalls that you can peruse until the joining us next Tuesday!

Virtual Townhall: Ask the Experts

Check out this great article by Ashley Braun that outlines just how inadequate Pebble has been throughout this permitting process. In the article, Braun checks in with former EPA employee Tom Yocom who makes it clear just how lackluster Pebble has been during this process. “If it had come across my desk, the permit applicant would have been told on day one: if this is the best you can do, don’t waste your money,” says Yocom.
