Arizona Rep Paul Gosar barricades himself in office
Background:Senators McCain and Flake Screw Over Apaches' Holy Land Giveaway to mining company
But this is Indian religion. Clearly the Arizona congressional delegation isn’t afraid of a couple of million conquered natives.The truth is that for Mr. McCain, Mr. Flake and others who would allow this precious public land to be destroyed, it’s not only the Indians who are invisible. The rest of us are also ghosts, remnants of a quaint idea of democracy.
Rep. Gosar Slams ‘Save Oak Flat Act’, Anti-Mining Misinformation Campaign Rally
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released a statement following a rally on the West lawn of the U.S. Capitol building in opposition to a bipartisan land exchange which paves the way for the development of the largest copper mine in North America:
“It’s unfortunate that environmental extremist groups and anti-mining opponents, including the Center for Biological Diversity, WildEarth Guardians, Greenpeace and a DC lobbyist from the Clinton Administration, have waged a misinformation campaign to try and repeal a bipartisan jobs bill that will generate $60 billion for our economy and create nearly 4,000 new jobs in an economically depressed area. Shamelessly, Bill Snape at the Center for Biological Diversity is even listed as the contact for interviews on today’s rally.
