Protect Against National Monument Slashing-Chicago

Co-sponsored by:

Trump has just signed two presidential proclamations dramatically reducing the sizes of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in Utah. He declared an 85% cut to the state's 1.3m acre Bears Ears National Monument and a 50% cut to its 1.9m acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. In addition, these large territories have been off limits to drilling, mining, grazing, road traffic and other harmful activities. Under this new legislation, these lands will no longer be protected. Of course, decisions like this are fueled by greed, historical disregard for native people, and pure short-sightedness. We have to do something to stop this. Please join us in protesting the extremely unnecessary reduction of this beautiful land for corporate purposes.
