Need to give us an update. I hate all this pussy footing around the Sani. They need to be told there is going to be a mine its as simple as that. Their arguments are complete and utter drivel. The delays just feed this continued slandering match. Give them something to moan about asap or most PIs will be out. I just want decisions to be made. This whole saga has been a farce from start to finish, I am all for consultation but this beggars belief at times
I surely hope you are right - the placard holder is representing the Sami village that is most effected by the mine at todays meeting, so I just wanted to show the attitude that he brings to the meeting.
He didn't say indigenous so how do you get around that? Mankind is all the same race and it is never too let to repair bad will. These are the earliest stages the next stage is the environmental permit and that is the time for the reindeer herding requirements to be addressed.
That is correct, UK, he said what local people, an off the cuff remark in reply to a question and taken totally out of context subsequently. The population is tiny something like 0.25 per kilometre compared to approx 4k in Stockholm (figures from memory) he meant no disrespect to anyone. That placard holder shown in the link this morning does mean disrespect not only to the company but to the local people in Jokkmokk who hope to get a job. And I hope the people who think they should have been involved earlier will turn up at the meeting, to demonstrate that they are willing to engage in a dialogue about their concerns, which may or may not be genuine.
Thought what CSP actually said was "what local people?" - might be wrong there as my memory is not always the best.
Not saying it was right but it was a long time ago, and I'm pretty sure he was not actually aware of what he was saying. He was making the point that the population density is incredibly low in an ill informed jokey manner and I don't think he specifically made any mention of indigineous or sami people but was referring to the wider Jokkmokk Region as a whole.
