She Dares To Speak

As farmers, consumers and care-givers, rural and indigenous women bear most of the visible and invisible environmental and social consequences of mineral extraction. Yet those who dare to speak out do so at great personal risk.

The following testimonies of three women from Peru illustrate the deleterious effects of mining on their homes and traditional ways of living.

What can you do to help

  • Write to your MP, MEP, the FCO or the UN. Tell them you don’t support mining investment because of the human and environmental side effects and ask them to pressure corporations to operate responsibly.

  • If you are a policymaker, support socially and environmentally responsible mining.

  • Join LAMMP’s mailing list and network of international supporters who are fighting against the injustice of mining. To join, contact us at [email protected] .

  • Financial support is always welcome but LAMMP also requires legal representation and advice, campaign assistance, and capacity-building resources. Do you have something to contribute? Please contact LAMMP by e-mail to [email protected] for more information.
