Sealaska Lands Bill
By Mike Brown
March 29, 2010
Murkowski lies when she speaks of the need for the Sealaska CORPORATION
to be allowed to reneg on a legal CONTRACT that they drew up,
and pick lands outside the AGREED upon area they chose in the
She ignores the damage Sealaska has traditionally done to the
environment by logging right to the bank of the rivers and creeks.
She ignores the damage this bill will cause to the lands and
the people that live in remote communities that were legally
PURCHASED from the Alaska Government.
The State of Alaska encouraged people to expand outward and settle
in these small communities, and then slaps the people who took
the state at their word. Murkowski dishonors the real native
people when she alludes that the fat-cats that run Sealaska will
actually do something to create a benefit for the native peoples.
The select few that run Sealaska will reap huge rewards on the
backs of the people they pretend to represent.
Anyone that reads the paper will read that Murkowski only wants
to give Sealaska the land it rightfully has coming. She usually
"forgets" to mention the fact that the new choices
are outside the CONTRACT areas, are already built up with roads
paid for by TAXPAYERS, and are going to devastate the communities
that rely on the unspoiled resources to survive. The betrayal
to the people that took the state at it's word is disgusting,
and the issue of the already constructed roads amounts to misappropriation
of public funds.
Murkowski needs to find a different way to repay the Sealaska
Corp for getting her elected.
Just my opinion, and I am nothing
but a disgusted voter.
