DILLINGHAM, AK – Today, the Bristol Bay region met the Pebble Limited Partnership’s long-delayed federal permit applications with skepticism and renewed determination as Northern Dynasty continues to move forward with a mine Alaskans don’t want.
“There is a long history of investors walking away from the proposed Pebble Mine -- and for good reason. It is an ill-conceived, shortsighted project that flies in the face of local people, American jobs, businesses, a majority of Alaskans and millions of hunters and anglers. This widespread and unwavering opposition, on top of numerous other concerns, has long made Pebble a risky investment.
To Alaskan audiences, Pebble says they have listened to our concerns and are now proposing a "smaller mine" with less impact to the fishery. Don’t be fooled by their lies. Because meanwhile, in attempts to attract investors, their OWN WEBSITE says the truth:
Over a 40-year career commercial fishing in Alaska, I’ve experienced a few occasions in which I knew I was amid something very rare and very special. The Sockeye return to Bristol Bay this past summer created one of those exceptional moments in time.
