At the Bad River potluck last Friday, some folks decided to organize a bicycle ride to raise awareness and build positive momentous energy on the way to the Hurley Public Hearing regarding G-TAC’s submitted Bulk Sampling and Intent to Mine application.

There will be two hearings before DNR representatives, one at 10:00 a.m., and one at 5:00 p.m. in the Hurley Highschool in Iron County.

There will also be a rally at 9:00 a.m. at the hearing location in opposition to the mine, driven by locals in the Northwoods area.

Anyone interested in joining the bike ride should meet promptly at 5 am in the parking lot across from the Black Cat coffee shop, near the intersection of Main  and Chapple.

Criminal complaints and potential charges against G-TAC  for hiring armed guards from Arizona’s “Bulletproof Security” to patrol the MFL (Managed Forest Land) in the Penokee Hills (open to the public) will most likely be dismissed .
