Robert Redford states: "Imagine a pit two miles wide by 2,000 feet deep, and an underground mine a mile deep. This gargantuan gold and copper operation would produce an estimated 10 billion tons of contaminated waste -- 3,000 pounds for every man, woman and child on Earth. Massive earthen dams -- some taller than the Three Gorges Dam in China -- would be constructed to hold back that waste forever. Now imagine all this in an active earthquake zone at the headwaters of the largest sockeye salmon runs in the world. The threat to Bristol Bay just below is unimaginable. No wonder the Pebble Mine is opposed by nearly 80 percent of Bristol Bay residents. The growing coalition to stop this disaster-in-the-making is led by Native village corporations, associations and tribes from around Bristol Bay. They've partnered with commercial and recreational fishermen, sportsmen and conservation groups to protect the thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars that come from Bristol Bay's renewable economic engine: wild salmon. Anglo American's history is littered with one pollution disaster after another: from Zimbabwe to Ireland to Nevada. Rio Tinto has left a trail of toxic contamination that spans the globe: from Indonesia to Bolivia to Utah. Do you trust these companies to take a catastrophic risk with one of our last and greatest wild places?" Thunda N Shakin - LYRICS: Can you hear the thunda rollin? Can you feel the earth a shakin? Can you see the storm arisin? Can you hear Alaska shoutin? No! No! No! You will not rape our motherland Now take that drill out of your hand. No! No! No! You will not gratify your lust We will defend her sacred trust No. No. No. You will not kill our salmon streams Dirty copper, dirty gold, dirty minds, and dirty dreams [CHORUS] No! No! No! You will not poison our pure water You will not lead us to your slaughter No! No! No! You will not build that deadly pond That dam will fail, we won't be conned No! No! No! You hide the facts, the truth you disguise The Devil's in the details, and in your eyes [CHORUS] No! No! No! You will not kill our way of life You will not stab us with that knife No! No! No! Corporate Canada go away America owns Bristol Bay No! No! No! The tides have turned, the winds are blowin Goodbye Pebble Mine, the stone's been thrown [CHORUS] No! No! No! You will not rape our motherland Now put that drill back in your pants. You are welcome to perform the song. Copyright 2012 John Lopker. All Rights Reserved.
