Activists Plan Training on How to Fight Mine Project Submitted: 05/16/2013
MADISON - Activists plan to train on how to stop a giant iron mine in northwestern Wisconsin. A group of 80 to 90 activists will be gathering in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest to learn ``peaceful resistance techniques.'' The training session is expected to begin Friday and end Monday. An online agenda calls for sessions on blockades, climbing and protesters rights.

There will also be a presentation from the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, who adamantly oppose the mine. Gogebic Taconite wants to build a massive open-pit mine in the Penokee range in Ashland and Iron counties.
