The saami are working the politics – naturally! Of course, it is in BEM’s interest to have open and on-going dialogue with everyone. Certainly with the saami. Jonas Vannar’s real target is the government, who holds the real power, and therefore responsible for and obligated to ensure that all stake holders are committed to an absolute democratic process (open dialogue etc) - (exploration or exploitation) why wouldn’t CSP want dialogue with the saami? It would only involve very little time and expense! - He doesn’t get offered the opportunity, because he doesn’t have the real power for change. The saami do not represent the nation, and since the designation the kallak’s value to the nation was both recognised and registered. The saami appreciates this, and therefore understand that a concession is progression from designation. We all know and accept that if a concession is granted there will be some costs to all stake holders. The saami want no costs - no mine!! They know that outcome is most unlikely. Since the designation, they viewed that the battle for the kallak’s was all but lost. Imo they are now at war with those who were responsible for that designation. There are political costs for those responsible for an undemocratic process (lack of dialogue, negotiations etc) . Aimho. atb
