On the night of his son’s wedding, people hired by a mega salt mining company burned Ngombo Tsuma’s home to the ground.
So he rebuilt, even while other people in his village took the meager $50 USD payout to move away. But Tsuma refused. His family’s land was all he had. A few years later, the thugs showed up again – and once more burned down his family’s homes.
Tsuma and his community are fighting back. They’re bringing a huge lawsuit against six salt mine companies on behalf of the villages besieged by salt mines – and if they win, they’ll take back their land.
Mining companies are sparing no cost on the best legal teams to protect their profits, and the community urgently needs funds to prepare for a court date next month to take back their land.
Can you chip in to help fund the lawsuit to stop salt mine companies from stealing and poisoning land?
