Of course, I'm sure their concerns will be instantly dismissed. Anyway, what do you think of this crap?Slingshot! Current Issue
The Mexican government and a corporation called Centro de Gestión Integral de Residuos S.A. (CEGRI) want to build a hazardous waste dump in O'odham territory, near the sacred site and village of Quitovac, with the implicit support of the US Environmental Protection Agency(EPA).
The proposed dump would desecrate the ceremonial site of Quitovac and devastate the culture, traditions, sacred sites and spiritual well-being of the O'odham Indigenous peoples in both Mexico and the U.S. The dump would also expose children and nearby communities to dangerous toxins and could contaminate the underground well that the communities depend on. Transport of hazardous materials through the nearby roads also causes O'odham activists concern. They point out that a spill or accident would have lasting impacts on the health of the traditional communities.
