Cross post about Native American Havasupai resistance to uranium mining, which threatens the water supply throughout the Southwest U.S.A.'s Colorado River Basin, http://tinyurl.com/kwuzpo,

Cameco's difficulty getting its jet bore uranium mine into operation, in Northern Saskatchewan, and the dwindling reserves in the "nuclear bomb mine," have increased uranium demand and created uranium mining pressure not only in the U.S., but also in Australia, Africa, and elsewhere, and, most often, on indigenous land.
