Mining

 

While mining brings in new resources for manufacturing and provides an important source of revenue for governments around the world, there is an ongoing, widespread legacy of harm associated with the mining industry, particularly when it comes to Indigenous Peoples.

Land theft, displacement, the loss of cultural resources, the poisoning of water supplies, human rights abuse, murder and rape... these are just some of the problems associated with the mining industry.

Fortunately, Indigenous Peoples aren't taking it lying down (even though we are expected to do just that). Rather, out of principle and our sheer need to survive we are taking governments and corporations to task.

In these archives you will learn about these struggles and challenges first hand.
