After a brave Indigenous community dared to stand up to a mining giant to save their land, Russian police raided their tiny village. They went house to house, threatening children and elders and confiscating food needed to make it through the winter.
It’s happening across Russia. If activists speak out against corporate giants in the face of stolen land, devastating oil spills, and contaminated water supplies, they face swift and terrifying repression.
Now there’s a way we can help them.
These brave heroes need to ramp up their security – and quickly. Our community can get them the funds they desperately need to establish secure communication channels and hold security trainings.
As private companies pillage resource-rich Indigenous lands for profit, these communities are refusing to be scared into silence. Will you help them fight back?
