Jokkmokk environment is the hottest election issue in the wilderness municipality of Jokkmokk. Should nature be sacrificed for mining their jobs? Or should Jokkmokk residents have exclusive rights to the mountain?
One by one the backs of the back and denies. Springer in another direction, waving off the question or shaking his head. It's a Wednesday in Jokkmokk and no one in the community wants to talk about the environmental issue, which by extension is about the current Kallakgruvan.
In the end is the one who wants to say something. It moved in artist Anders Sunna. He has lived in both Pajala and Kiruna and do not like the idea of ​​a mine.
Man is a predator that just takes and takes resources. I do not want to live in a mining community, it's a different mentality. Colder, he says.
Malin Sundberg, Jokkmoksbo and process expert in Waterfall, is one of those who have dared to speak her mind all the way. She is a mine under certain assumptions.
All must surely have the right to an opinion. But it has calmed down now and it's probably a mixture of having a little tired and that you realize this with the mine will take time. You can not be bothered to fight. Then I can imagine that civil dialogue groups have done his, and I think that will reflect the choice as well, although not all will take a position on mine anyway, she says.
Is it possible to combine with a mine to be a wilderness community?
I'm so naive that I believe it. We have a large proportion of protected areas here. Just to preserve all that is without in any way be able to use it, then we have nothing to live on.
If there is no mine, what have you options?
Then we should make concessions for tourism in the mountains, so we can show off the scenery in a good way. You have to get to go in there in a controlled manner. We can not just lock it and preserve. Maybe it's time that it will be exclusive to stay in Jokkmokk, we have more rights as a resident of this community, both to conduct tourism and reside in the mountains.
Kent Oskarsson has driven game companies in the town for 28 years. Moreover, he is a supervisor at BDX. He has a foot in each industry and is cleft into this with the environment.
Something we need that. A mine is not kind to the environment, it is not. But it is a fact that if you're going to have something, you must also give. We have a welfare state and it must be paid somehow.
You are prepared to say yes to mine?
If it gives these jobs as it is said, and that they can guarantee the environment.
He do not believe that the mining issue determines the choice locally.
I think you have other values ​​that are put first. I do that myself anyway.
How would you feel about Jokkmokk became new Kiruna?
Jokkmokk Should mineral fee be increased or not? It was one of the issues that were debated yesterday in Jokkmokk.
The eight parliamentary parties were all in place during Nordnytts debate about the mining industry.
The first issue was the mineral fee. Today, the state 0.5 per thousand and 1.5 per thousand landowners in compensation.
Alliance parties M and FP argued that the fee is only one of all taxes levied. Johan Johansson (M) also pointed out that a study of mineral added benefit. It will provide answers to whether they are reasons to adjust up or down.
KD's Anders Pettersson wanted to see that municipalities where mining activity starts getting any form of bonuses.
A regional fee is something that appealed to the Centre Party, Nils O. Lindfors, who also would not accept a mine on their land with today's low reimbursement.
Annika Eriksson (MP) for its part noted that the state currently subsidizes the private mining industry, which is why a raise should be in place.
Even Birger Lahti (V) for a raise - money that could get people to part.
Many of the debaters is a mine of Kallak in Jokkmokk Municipality, including the number of jobs would increase.
- A mine would give a tremendous effect for Jokkmokk, said Sven-Erik Bucht (S).
He was supported by both Anders Pettersson (KD) and Jeff Ahl (SD) who saw it as a chance to Jokkmokk to flourish again.
Annika Eriksson asked himself why the mining industry so easily gets preference over reindeer herding and tourism.
- Why not protect indigenous people and nature. There are values ​​you can not appreciate the money, she said.
Birger Lahti was along the same lines and asked whether current generations to dig up everything.
Sven-Erik Bucht responded by mining causes large amounts coming into the common treasury.

The gap between the blocks have more than halved - in just three days. The new Aftonbladet / United Minds differs now only 4.2 per cent. - The Social Democrats can not be as sure of an election victory as before, says analyst Felix Åberg.
The new Aftonbladet / United Minds reduces the gap between the Alliance and the Red-Green to record low. Not since November 2012 has been so little distance. Compared to the latest poll from last Saturday, the gap has more than halved from 9 percent to 4.2 in just three days.
- I was mildly surprised. Although much has spoken to the gap would shrink, I had not expected a really big movement. This result means that the Social Democrats might not be quite as confident as before an election victory, says Felix Atkins, analyst at United Minds.
Both Sifo opinion poll from the weekend and Novus from yesterday showed similar results with the gap of 4.5 percentage points and the fifth.
Good in debates
This is because the smaller Alliance parties going forward. The Liberal Party and the Christian Democrats is increasing - something those of Felix Åberg usually do in election campaigns - but especially the Centre Party takes a leap upwards by 1.9 percentage points.
The explanation is believed to be a Annie Loof effect.
- Annie Loof has made good debates and also did well in the hearing of the SVT party leader, says Atkins. The Centre Party has also noticed that the voters have shown great interest in the party's key issues, small businesses and rural areas.
- It is of course gratifying, but it is on Election Day, it will be decided. Now it's about continuing to talk about matters of the heart: food, jobs, the environment and the countryside to get a great result on election night. We can demonstrate clear evidence of results and we also want to continue the way forward, says Annie Loof on the new figures in Aftonbladet / United Minds.
"Kopparberg Mineral has difficulty with financing of prospecting so we have decided to postpone the drilling campaign in the spring Tvistbo deposits by 2015.
According to the company's request to Mountain State for an extension of two exploration permits Tvistbo 100 and 200 for one year.
"A plan of work in respect of core drilling were sent in late summer 2013 to the landowners. Reason for the postponement of the implementation of the planned work is the general difficulty to finance exploration because of the prevailing world market," the company application.
Each drill meters will cost around 1000 SEK as a drilling campaign requires funding."
I agree. I don’t see any reason whatsoever why he doesn’t at this very time. Any future finger pointing, re: him already been given the nod (allegations of an undemocratic process) wouldn’t carry under these circumstances imo. The way this has been played over the last 12-18 months, I get the impression that the powers may have reason(s) to suspect that the possible option of an appeal may be exercised if the concession is granted, therefore, actions to date (or lack of, protestors etc) have been to ensure that there are no national or international grounds to allow for a second bite of the cherry! atb
