Sacred land, secret legislation, and billions of dollars.

These are a few issues surrounding a controversy that has Arizona’s Apache tribe taking on copper mining giants.

As part of an exchange approved by US Congress, 2,000 acres of federal land will be given to the Rio Tinto mining firm, who says the project will bring economic prosperity.

Apache claim the site is holy and must be protected.

Story
Tagline
The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera English.
Introduction
The Stream is a new phenomenon – a web community with its own daily show on Al Jazeera. The Stream taps into the extraordinary potential of the increasing power of social networks to disseminate news. Individuals have now become an integral part of the news information network through their ability to publish information and share opinions on events as they take place. 

The viral nature of social networks allows for such information to spread and multiply rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera, they are also a huge opportunity to reach news in places and at levels until now impossible. 

The Stream is a super-aggregator of these online sources, seeking out both untold stories and new, ground level takes on stories in the mainstream.
