Friday morning the Indigenous Environmental Network plans to protest environmental racism outside the headquarters of Sithe Global Power in New York. You may remember Sithe Global from a story we did a couple months back about the Desert Rock project, a proposed coal plant on the Navajo Nation that’s been met with hostility from locals. Sithe, in collaboration with the Navajo Nation’s government, is planning to build Desert Rock within a 15-mile radius of two other massive coal plants, Four Corners Power Plant and San Juan Generating Station. The Navajo government says a new energy project could pull a lot of money into the local economy. But Navajo residents say they are not likely to see much of that money. Many residents fear another power plant could endanger the local health and environment.
This week, members of the Indigenous Peoples from the U.S. and Canada delegation will protest fossil fuel expansion on Indigenous lands, addressing both the threat of climate change and public health risks presented by Desert Rock and projects of its nature.
The protest comes on the same day as the meeting on climate changebeing held tomorrow by the U.N. Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.
