Navajo Water Supply is More Horrific Than Flint, But No One Cares Because They’re Native American

Politicians continue to take advantage of Native Americans, making deals with mining companies that would continue polluting their water supplies. Senator John McCain sneaked a resolution into the last defense bill which gave land to Resolution Copper. Their planned copper mining would poison waters that Apaches rely on and would desecrate the ceremonial grounds at Oak Flat.

While EPA and local officials have been forced to address the poisoned water in Flint, the contamination of Indian country water supplies continues. A bill called the Uranium Exploration and Mining Accountability Act, introduced by Arizona Congressman Raúl Grijalva, has languished in Congress for two years.

  1. This took place in our neighborhood. Tucson, AZ close to a company that would take daily water and dumping it on our grounds where there would be no homes, but still added up and got into the wells water. But because we were the lower income area it was ignored for years until it had to go to court.

  2. What the hell is wrong with these money hungry fools in DC!!! This is inexcusable! Depopulate the Americans! Can you not contact someone that can investigate and take the water to Washington and see if they risk drinking this crap! Sorry for the language.
