The Native American Havasupi tribe have invited the public to join them, on June 25th and 26th, to protest at Red Bluff, Arizona, a Havasupi sacred site threatened by Denison Mining's plan to reopen its open pit uranium mine, Arizona One, near the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Most news sources were reporting, as of 07.19.2009, that Denison is only one Arizona air quality permit away from reopening the mine closed 20 years ago.

The Havasupi protest echoes indigenous, environmental, and anti-nuclear protest around the world, as global uranium demand increases, new nuclear power plants are constructed and proposed, and, the nuclear bomb mine---the supply of U-235, from nuclear weapons that the United States and the Soviet Union began deconstructing at the end of the Cold War----dwindles.

Uranium, including that in the dwindling nuclear bomb mine, is a finite resource, in human time. It is renewable only in the earth's geological time, which cannot begin to keep pace with the rate at which it is being burned in reactors.
