571 Lori Coleman – Opposition to Proposed Mimbres Peaks National Monument

On this week’s interview Paul talks to Lori Coleman. Lori is a small-time miner in Southern, NM and the Florida mountains.

She owns Spanish Stirrup Rock Shop, LLC and the SS Stone Gallery in Luna County and Lincoln County, New Mexico.

She opposes plans by some politicians in New Mexico to make the region a 245,000 acre National Monument which Lori believes would have detrimental impacts on her business, access to the area, and the local economy.

Paul and Lori discuss serious issues with the process and how New Mexicans can push back against this land grab. One way is by adding your name to the linked petition.
