"Ripping the Veins Out of Mother Earth: Black Mesa Revisited"
Vernon Masayesva, former Chairman of the Hopi Nation and Director of the Black Mesa Trust in Northern Arizonahttp://www.blackmesatrust.org/), Mike Boyd of Californians For Renewable Energies (CARE) and Sandy Fox of the Los Angeles based Love Planet Foundation (http://www.loveplanetfoundation.org/) join us for the hour to discuss coal mining, electricity generation, and Southern California. American Indian Airwaves presents an in-depth look at the Black Mesa coal strip mine on the lands of the Hopi and Dine' peoples, the impact of 35 years of mining in the once pristine Black Mesa and a proposal to channel pollution tax credits to the people on the land who have endured decades of ecocide (i.e.. coal mining and electricity generation) and its relationship to Southern California's,specifically Los Angeles County, culpability to ripping the veins out of Mother Earth.
