Brave grandmother Máxima Acuña has been beaten, hospitalized, and bullied in court by the biggest gold mining company in the world.
Our community has come together to help her before…and now she needs our help again.
For more than a decade, Newmont Mining has had its sights set on Máxima’s family farm in Peru. Newmont tried everything to turn the land into a massive new gold and copper mine, but Máxima refused to give up her home…and has paid a brutal price.
After years of lawsuits, Máxima’s legal fund has dried up. A decision on her case will come any day, but it won't be the end of the road. If she wins, Newmont will try to bankrupt her with an appeal. And if the mining Goliath wins, Máxima will have to appeal herself or lose her land. Without more cash, it's a losing battle. Can you chip in to help this brave grandmother win her case once and for all?
