Call for Solidarity; Indigenous group seeks response from General Motors regarding human rights issues at Thacker Pass.
People of Red Mountain (PRM), is an Indigenous grassroots organization that was formed to protect the sacred site, Peehee Mu’huh – Thacker Pass. People of Red Mountain has raised significant and urgent concerns regarding human, religious, and Indigenous Peoples rights violations by the proposed mine.
In January of 2023, General Motors provided a $650 million joint Equity Investment and Supply Agreement with Lithium Americas to develop the Thacker Pass lithium mine at Peehee Mu’huh in Nevada. The SIRGE Coalition and People of Red Mountain prepared a letter to GM highlighting the company’s social policies and requesting a meeting on the human rights implications of this investment. We sent the letter in early March, but have not received a response. Currently, we are asking organizations and investors that support Paiute, Shoshone, and Bannock human rights to reach out to their contacts at GM, and request that the company respond to the letter.

When we lose our connection to the land, we all suffer. When we embrace our connection and treat the land with respect, we all benefit. Take care of the land, take care of ourselves. We are all land.
