“According to the Free Thought Project, three years ago, Utah Congressmen Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz came up with a proposal called the Utah Public Lands Initiative (PLI). It is said the PLI aimed at turning more than a quarter of the Ute Tribe’s land into oil and drilling zones. The Ute people are Native Americans of the Ute tribe and culture. They live primarily in Utah and Colorado.
Three years since the PLI was proposed, it is now reported that the proposal has metamorphosed into a bill known as HR5780. In fact, in some few weeks, HR5780 will be pushed through in the United States House of Representatives, meaning natives will lose their lands to the federal government. It is said this government grab of Native American land is the first of its kind in over 100 years.”
Activists need to start now in condemning this project. Otherwise, what will happen is they will show up to block construction and takeover when it’s already too late, thanks to two corrupt Republicans in Utah who’ve been bought by Oil and Gas.
