The Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River, Inc. is incorporated as a legal non-profit entity. From their website:
“This is the philosophy behind the Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River, Inc.
Many people oppose the construction of the proposed Back Forty Mine on the Menominee River. We exist to pool resources and coordinate efforts in order to be more effective.
We believe we are saving lives. The mine would contaminate our air, waters, and soils. Contamination kills. We believe an organized approach is the best way to save our waters, wildlife, property values, sacred lands, tourism industry, and our people.”
Shirts, hats, lawn signs, bumper stickers. The also offer a locally produced DVD about their issue. Proceeds go to support the coalition.
