Join us to our next Forum on the eve of the Global Day Against Open Pit Mining to watch In Defence of Life followed by a discussion about mining and how communities around the world are resisting, and call for action on July 22nd.
In Defence of Life follows the struggle and triumphs of four communities resisting large-scale mining projects in Colombia, the Philippines, South Africa and Romania.
Courageous environmental and human rights defenders from these communities describe how they have suffered and why they are standing firm to protect their families, land, water and life from destruction by mining. A film by Jess Phillimore for The Gaia Foundation
