Organising for people’s development sovereignty, our right to say NO

Extractives, mining, energy and mega infrastructure projects displace communities, destroy nature, erode livelihoods and detach people from their culture. Communities across the world resist this violent dispossession on the basis of their own ideas about development and the good life. Free Prior and Informed Consent, whether legislated or not, is a critical tool in these resistances. This space converges movements and struggles for development sovereignty and self determination.
