Our analysis suggests that the issue facing your community is a symptom of a legal and governing system that allows governments and corporations to override the best interest of human communities and the greater non-human ecosystem.
When it comes to issues of Extraction and Pollution, there are too many examples to list here.
Maybe you are experiencing Chemical Trespass.
Maybe the fracking industry threatens your community.
Maybe you want to stop a mine.
Stopping these projects can be a matter of life or death for communities and future generations. Exercising the power needed to stop such extraction and pollution is the same type of power we need to get used to using as we build toward a new more equitable and sustainable world. Both challenge the same status quo and are obstructed by the same forces and legal paradigms.
