Mining industry financed film, "Mine Your Own Business"

New Mexico energy industry front groups CARE and the Rio Grande Foundation sponsored an unveiling of a mining industry financed film, "Mine Your Own Business," in Farmington this past Thursday. According to the Daily Times, "comments - intended to localize the film's message - angered Mike Eisenfeld of San Juan Citizens Alliance and Dailan Long of Diné Citizens Against Ruining Our Environment

"Don't come here and accuse us of the things you do," Eisenfeld said, adding that Driessen had no idea about the dynamics of the Navajo Nation-Desert Rock Power Plant issue.

San Juan Citizens Alliance's 500 members work locally — and independently, Eisenfeld said.

"We don't pretend to have (all) the answers," he said. "To say I'm an obstructionist is laughable; I'm just a little guy trying to create some balance."'
