Right to Say No: Learning From Global Struggles

The Thematic Social Forum on Mining and Extractive Economy is exploring how the “Right to Say No” to mine is being carried out, in different parts of the world, to find a common ground towards building a global campaign for the Right to Say No. Speakers from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America, in this video, presents how communities have been building formulations and struggles around the idea of the “right to say no” and the need to build mining-free territories.
