Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Rage on the reservation: EPA spill stokes Navajo mistrust of feds

The mistrust Native Americans have long harbored toward the federal
government has gone to another level in Navajo territory land, where
residents angrily scoff at the Environmental Protection Agency's
assurances its accidental mining spill won't foul the key San Juan River
floodplain they depend on for their lives and livelihoods.



 EPA Secretary Gina McCarthy rushed to the region this week in the
wake of the spill at the defunct Gold King Mine near Durango, Colo., to
announce that the river system that includes Cement Creek and the
Animas, San Juan and Colorado rivers will not be seriously impacted by a
spill of 3 million gallons of mining wastewater laden with heavy
metals. But McCarthy's claim that ecosystem was "restoring itself" did
not convince Navajo leaders.



“The EPA was right in the middle of the disaster, and we intend to
make sure the Navajo Nation recovers every dollar it spends cleaning up
this mess and every dollar it loses as a result of injuries to our
precious Navajo natural resources,” said Navajo Nation President Russell
Begaye. | Fox News
