From Wis. Network for Peace & Justice:
WNPJ's member assembly and awards reception Saturday, October 8th at the Pyle Center in Madison just got more exciting!
Bad River Tribal Chair Mike Wiggins, right, will join our discussion of "Extreme Mining in Wisconsin." The tribe strongly opposes the proposed Penokee Hills open pit mine.
WNPJ's member assembly runs from 11 am to 2:30 pm, and includes lunch. Registration is $20 for WNPJ members, $25 for non-members, and can be paid at the door. We'll open with a "State of the Network" report and WNPJ's proposed budget and Board slate for 2012.
Then we'll view "Keepers of the Water," on the grassroots uprising against the Crandon sulfide mine, followed by a stellar panel on "Extreme Mining in Wisconsin": Professor and author Al Gedicks, Bad River Tribal Chair Mike Wiggins and Jessica Koski of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community on Eagle Rock in Michigan.
