All over the world, fossil fuel extraction is blighting the lives of poor communities. Registered in London and bankrolled by London’s powerful financial sector, giant mining corporations are forcing people from their homes, polluting the environment and driving climate change. Join us to demand energy justice!

Organised by London Mining Network, Colombia Solidarity Campaign, Down to Earth and the World Development Movement. This event is part of WDM’s Carbon Capital speaker tour and is being held on the day of the AGM of mining company BHP Billiton.
