Dear ellen sue,

“Please watch our new video about the Pebble Mine, then make your voice heard in London when and where it counts.”

Two weeks from now, foreign mining giants Anglo American and Rio Tinto — two of the major backers of the disastrous Pebble Mine — will hold their annual shareholder meetings in London.

There’s no better time for you and me to shine a harsh spotlight on their plans and turn up the heat on their executives and investors.

That’s why I joined with NRDC to make a new, hard-hitting video about this outrageous assault on an American natural treasure. But we’re counting on you to do the rest.

Please watch this one-minute video, then sign our Petition of Protest. It will be delivered directly to the shareholder meetings in London by representatives of NRDC.

Here’s the ugly truth: the Pebble Mine would dump some 10 billion tons of toxin-laced mining waste into one of our nation’s last and greatest wild places — endangering a wildlife paradise, the world’s greatest sockeye salmon runs and the people who depend on that extraordinary fishery for survival.

Is it any wonder that the Native communities and fishermen of Bristol Bay have united against this apocalyptic threat?

Rio Tinto and Anglo American love to talk about their respect for local communities. Talk is cheap. Despite overwhelming local opposition, these global corporations continue bulldozing ahead with plans that could destroy the very headwaters of Bristol Bay.

You have to wonder what part of “No” these companies don’t understand.

Two weeks from now, we’re going to hold them accountable in their own backyard. Please join me in telling Anglo American and Rio Tinto that they are in for the fight of their lives.

Watch the video and sign our new Petition right away. We will deliver it, along with your signature, directly to the shareholder meetings on April 19.

People around the world have already sent 750,000 messages voicing their opposition to the Pebble Mine. Help us make it to one million strong!

And thank you for fighting alongside me and NRDC to stop the Pebble Mine.

Robert Redford
