Last year, President Trump illegally revoked protections for Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments. And right now, the Trump administration is moving to open areas that were once protected to dirty energy companies – effectively selling out our public lands for Big Polluters profits.
This is a critical moment to stand alongside the communities -- especially the tribal communities -- that have led this fight and stop this sellout! Sign the petition and demand that Big Polluters are kept OUT of Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments!
SUBJECT: Stop attacks on our public lands
Dear Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke,
Opening areas of the Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments to mining and drilling risks our health and environment for the profits of corporate polluters.
These dirty energy activities irreparably hurt the terrain, ecosystems, and communities that rely on these critical regions. For the sake of all our communities, economy, and environment we must keep drilling and mining out of Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments.
I stand with the tribal communities and the millions of people across the country who have led the fight to protect our public lands and national monuments, and I demand that the Trump administration respect the original and legitimate boundaries and protections of the monuments.
