Haul No! is a volunteer Indigenous-led group collaborating with Indigenous communities and leaders, environmental organizations, and community-based advocates working to stop nuclear colonialism in the Southwest.
The Haul No! Tour will include presentations on public health, cultural and environmental impacts from uranium mining, and a direct action workshop. Starting near the White Mesa Uranium Mill, also operated by EFI, and stopping in impacted Indigenous communities and the city of Flagstaff, the tour will wrap up at sacred Red Butte near Canyon Mine. The tour will culminate at a Prayer Gathering organized by the Havasupai Nation.
Up to 12 trucks a day with 30 tons each of highly radioactive uranium ore are slated to be transported through mostly small reservation communities.The Havasupai Nation has legally challenged the US Forest Service due failure complete meaningful consultation with the Havasupai in their 1986 Environmental Impact Statement regarding Canyon Mine. A decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is still pending. Although the Navajo Nation has banned transport of uranium through its lands since 2012, EFI would be permitted by the state of Arizona due to jurisdictional issues.
The Haul No! tour is free and open to the public.
