For now, the pending archeological dig (desecration) has been postponed as the tribal governments opposed to the mine have managed to force the BLM to delay. Will Falk and the other lawyers working on the case are deep in the thick of things. They are writing dozens of pages of detailed, research-heavy legal briefs and filings every week to meet tight deadlines.
Over the course of the last month, the BLM has been required to provide our attorneys with the “Administrative Record,” and in these documents we’ve found some new evidence of wrongdoing from the BLM and the lithium company. It looks as though they have not just violated NEPA and the National Historic Preservation Act, they’ve violated a bunch of other laws as well, and even violated their own regulations and their own plans.
As winter sets in and the danger of archeological digging this year seems lower, we need people to come hang at camp and be ready to cook a hot meal, help with chores, and otherwise hold down the space.
Contact us if you want to come to camp!
