Here's an email I got yesterday. I hope it fires up those who plan to
attend the PolyMet public hearing in St. Paul, and encourages those who
haven't yet decided to go to do so.

The Mining Truth email before the Duluth hearing sought volunteers to come
early and help out. This one does not. If the one before the St. Paul
hearing asks for volunteers, I plan to go early. Otherwise, I can always
use a ride.

Dear Scott,
  [image: PolyMet Hearing in Duluth 1-16-14]

The people of Minnesota are speaking out on PolyMet’s proposed  sulfide
mine, and their voices are being heard.

Last week, on a windy, cold night in Duluth, 1,500 people came out for the
first public meeting. They showed that northeastern Minnesota is deeply
concerned about the burden that hundreds of years of polluted water would
leave behind for the next generations.

The next meeting is in Aurora and we need you there! Remind everyone that
500 years of treating polluted water for 20 years of mining is a bad deal
for Minnesota. *Please join your friends and neighbors tomorrow night at
the DNR Public Meeting: *

*Date: Wednesday, January 22nd*

*Location: Mesabi East High School, 601 N. 1st Street W., Aurora, MN 55705*

*Time: 5:00 – 6:45 Open House (you can ask questions of the DNR and the
tribal cooperating agencies)*

*  6:45 – 10:00 Public Meeting (testimony will be taken from members of the
public who sign up, limited to 3 minutes each)*

When you arrive, look for people distributing stickers that say “500
Years?” “Protect Clean Water,” and “Who Pays for Pollution?” for assistance
on where to go.

If you can’t make tomorrow’s meeting there is still one DNR meeting on the
calendar. The final hearing will be held in St. Paul on the evening of
Tuesday, January 28th. We’ll send more information about that hearing soon.

As of this morning, 5,263 people have used Mining Truth’s
have their say on PolyMet!

If you can’t make the public hearings, you can still join thousands of
others who’ve told the DNR what they think by visiting
make your comment.

But remember, if you can be in Aurora tomorrow night, your presence will do
even more to show the DNR that Minnesotans think PolyMet is a bad deal for
our state.
