Thank you so much for your support of our human rights and history! Unfortunately, the Army Corps has still not extended public comments so more of our tribal members and local citizens can provide their views. Can you help?
The Corps is accepting comments via email to [email protected], due May 7th at 5pm EDT. More public comments = closer review, so every comment helps. The Nation would be so grateful if you would raise your voice once more. Here's a draft email:
Dear Mr. Vanderploeg,
I am deeply concerned about the plans to destroy the Monacan capital of Rassawek, and likely disturb Monacan ancestors, for the James River Water Authority pump station. This represents a miscarriage of justice and a continuation of many centuries of oppression by the native occupants of Virginia. The Corps should not provide their stamp of approval.
I ask that the Corps require an EIS and a public hearing to ensure that all alternatives are considered and all voices are heard.
