Signatures needed for petition against land grab

Congress passed a defense bill which included (at the last second, courtesy of Senator John McCain) a bit giving away public lands in Arizona to a foreign mining company. These lands include one of Arizona's largest climbing destinations, Full of (for a lack of better terms) epic wilderness and ecological diversity, and is of extreme importance to the native people of this land. And they're trying to give it away to a mining company based out of Australia/UK due to a large copper deposit being present in the area.


As of now there are roughly 25,000 more signatures needed, so signing it is very helpful, SHARING it is crucial. The deadline is Jan 3rd.

Where/when do we set a limit to the unnecessary destruction of our earth? Please help...

How ironic that a defense bill provision is giving a piece of our country to a foreign consortium.
