Welcome to the scary new world of mining in Scott Walker’s Wisconsin.
These so called “Eco Terrorists” that these guards are protecting the mining site from are a group of Native American people who have established a harvest camp, their right under the treaties, near the site of the proposed mine. More information on that here.
The mine and the Wisconsin government, including Gov. Scott Walker, are trying to paint these Native people as terrorists, I don’t know about you but a guy with a semi-automatic rifle is more terrifying to me than a bunch of Ojibwe kids out picking berries, and elders gathering medicines and wild veggies, herbs.
