Privatization is Theft
As the Native American Rights Fund notes, privatization of Bears Ears National Monument is theft.

President Trump's revocation of Bears Ears National Monument--the first revocation in U.S. history--is "taking public lands that belong to the American people and selling it to the highest bidder."
