NMA calls for a peaceful day in Washington

NMA calls for a peaceful day in Washington

(Posted on 19/01/21)

The National Mining Association (NMA) has issued the following statement from Rich Nolan, President and CEO, on the USA’s Inauguration Day

“For more than 200 years, our nation has gathered peacefully on Inauguration Day under the leadership of thoughtful elected officials to witness the swearing in of the President and Vice President. Former presidents of both parties, along with members of Congress, set aside political differences to join in a day of ceremony and celebration that goes beyond any one individual or party, reflecting the significance of seeing the democratic process work as intended.

January 20, 2021, should be a day of unification and celebration. I offer my most sincere congratulations to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for their historic victory, and join in the calls for a peaceful day in Washington – and across the country – and an orderly transition of power. Americans are better than the violent acts, hateful speech and proliferation of distortions that have marred our recent days. I look forward to working with the new administration and sharing the perspectives and priorities of our great industry, which contributes so much to American life and the U.S. economy.”

The NMA is U.S. mining’s advocate in Washington, D.C. and beyond. NMA is the only national trade organization that represents the interests of mining before Congress, the administration, federal agencies, the judiciary and the media. It issued the following on the violence at the Capitol on 6 January:

“The violence at the U.S. Capitol today is appalling and has no place in America. All of us the National Mining Association support the Members of Congress and their staff, the journalists, the Capitol Police and law enforcement who are bravely working to restore order and protect our democracy.”
