Sacred campground on public land — now set to become a thousand-foot pit

The Oak Flat Campground is on U.S. Forest Service land near Superior, Arizona — about an hour from Phoenix. It was set aside a half-century ago, during the Eisenhower Administration, and then handed to two foreign mining corporations by their allies in the U.S. Congress, to extract copper for the next 40 years. The underground mine will collapse, all parties agree, and that will result in a mile-wide crater, a thousand feet deep. But the fight over Oak Flat continues, as Apache tribal leader Wendsler Nosie explains here. He invites your help.
