But a company spokesperson says they're simply trying to protect themselves from the types of protesters that vandalized the mine site on June 11th.
15 to 20 protesters raided the mine site in the Town of Anderson early that morning, throwing full soda cans and water jugs towards some workers.
One of the protesters, who Iron County Sheriff's Deputies identified as 26 year-old Katie Kloth of Stevens Point, is facing a felony charge of robbery with use of force.
A sheriff's report states Kloth forcibly stole a camera away from a Gogebic employee who was videotaping the protesters.
The employee told sheriff's deputies that Kloth screamed at her, "Don't you (expletive) know what you are doing to the environment? Oh my God, you (expletive) idiots, you are going to ruin all our pristine water!"
"There are criminal charges that have come as a result of that attack," said Gogebic Taconite Spokesperson Bob Seitz. "They destroyed our equipment, attacked our people personally and threatened them with further attacks."

Ah yes, the environazis following their ironic creed:
“DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO.”
I suspect the greenies litter more than the average person.
Well, I’m off in my private jet to scold people for driving to work.
The best retort to that is:
Don't you (non-expletive) know what you are doing to the economy? You (non-expletive) idiots, you are going to ruin civilization and end all of our freedoms!”
Yep, we need to get on this one...the “No’s” are currently winning.
That way they can have a clear conscience and they will be less of a threat to themselves and others.
Maybe a little creative protesting should be done, like the miners should assemble and protest outside the homes of the environmentalists using the same tactics and behavior.
See how they like those sort of projectiles, vandalism, and assault.
“embracing others’ differences” only applies one direction.
the homes of the environmentalists using the same tactics and behavior.
That would be great except the environmentalists aren’t even from the area. They are being shipped in.
I should have known.
