Lydian’s threat of a corporate courts lawsuit has bullied the government into giving a destrcutive mine the green light in the south of Armenia.
Galvanised by the recent revolution in Armenia, the local community have blockaded the polluting Amulsar mine for the past year. They have stopped all construction on the mine, preventing any gold from being extracted. But with this lawsuit looming, the livelihoods of the locals are now under threat more than ever.
It’s vital that we get as many people behind this campaign as possible before it’s too late. The more people we get on board, and the more resources we have, the more likely we are to succeed.
Will you stand with the local communities in Armenia fighting Lydian’s toxic attack on democracy and human rights by donating today?
