Help stop a toxic attack on democracy

Armenian and UK activists

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?

Your donation today could make sure we can:

  • Mobilise public opposition to corporate courts. You could help support and inform activists across the country with the resources they need – including our new documentary film – to get the word out and empower new people to take action.
  • Expose profiteering companies like Lydian. You could help resource our activism and public stunts so that we can get media coverage and shame the corporations like Lydian.
  • Carry out extensive research on corporate courts. You could help produce hard-hitting and in-depth briefings and reports that expose the shameful injustice of these shady tribunals and the companies profiting from them.
  • Help communities on the frontline. You could amplify the voices of those on the sharp end of these unjust cases by helping our campaigners to visit and co-ordinate the campaign together with the local communities in Armenia affected by Lydian’s toxic attack on democracy.
