Video Report from Rosemont Public Meeting: Giffords’ Aide Shouted Down by Rosemont Mob

But Ron Barber courageously persisted and was able to finish.

Is this the corporate citizenship we can expect from Rosemont that Rod Pace talks about?

    AUGUSTA RESOURCES IS NOT A MINING COMPANY NOR HAS IT EVER PUT A MINE INTO PRODUCTION . ROSEMONT IS AN EXAMPLE OF A MINERAL DEPOSIT BEING READIED FOR ” FLIPPING “. HOWEVER , THE PERMITTING IS ESSENTIAL TO THIS ” FLIPPING ” AND ROSEMONT WILL STOP AT NOTHING IN ORDER TO GET WHAT THEY WANT . ROSEMONT IS STILL TRYING TO BORROW MONEY TO COVER THE CAPITAL COST OF THE PROJECT . UNTIL THEY HAVE GUARANTEED SOURCES OF FUNDS , THE PROJECT IS NOT VIABLE .

    My elderly father and I were at the last Rosemont hearing in Sahuarita. We left early, shortly after the first speaker, Mr Ron Barber, was booed. From the beginning I felt the atmosphere was hostile with even the substantial amount of Sahuarita police hostile toward some of us who were peaceably talking in the parking lot. We left early because I was, frankly, a bit afraid for my elderly father’s physical welfare, as the Rosemont supporters seemed very revved-up, militant, hostile, and not open to civil discourse. If this is the way that this Canadian corporation does business, I tremble for our community!

    If this is the way that Augusta behaves before receiving final approval, we can only imagine what their actions would be if approval was granted to go ahead with the mine!
    This is good corporate citizenship?
    Mining yes. Rosemont no.

    I, too, am deeply troubled after watching the video of the pre-luncheon activities. It is clear that Rosemont’s purpose in organizing the event was to lather up its pawns who then, predictably, behaved as they did when Rob Barber spoke. We must not let ourselves be overwhelmed by the wealth, greed and manipulative practices of Rosemont. This project can be stopped because it is clear that any possible short- term benefits are clearly outweighed by the devastating long-term harm it will inflict. It will have a profoundly detrimental impact on our environment and the mere existence of this community. Good sense and conscience will surely and must prevail.
