  • Full text on poster: "Comalco and Alcan are mining our counrty today. No compensation. Nothing at all. That's what I say - we have to crawl on our hands and knees to get a piece of land - maybe just big enough to put a bed or tub on. Why do we have to do these things when we own this land in the first place through our great grandparents, taking it back before any European came here? This doesn't come in nowhere these days and we want to know why. We have to get some good friends to help us along to fight this battle. We want our land." - Jerry Hudson
