Activists come out in force to oppose BLM land lease sales

About 200 environmental, tribal and community activists protested Wednesday in Santa Fe against the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s latest lease sale for oil and gas development on public lands in New Mexico.

The two-day online auction, which began Wednesday and ends today, will award more than 100 parcels of land for development on some 87,000 acres in northwestern and southeastern New Mexico.

Demonstrators were protesting the sale of leases in areas around Chaco Culture National Historical Park.
