Join Hostess Billie Fidlin, President of WhispernThunder, and Guests: Sarah King, Chair, Earth Care Commission, Arizona Faith Network for an update on the violation of religious rights in Arizona.
Oak Flat, located on sacred Apache land in San Carlos, Arizona, is one of the last pristine areas in the state that is now being attacked. Sarah King and guests will discuss the long standing tensions between the economics of mining and the preservation of the environment. Advocates for mining call Oak Flat rich in copper and cite jobs potential. But the battle over Oak Flat lies 7,000 feet underground and in the copper veined history of Arizona. How much more can we destroy and what is the real cost to the morals of Arizona?
