we fight for life

We have come together under the banner of Yes to Life No to Mining (YLNM) in the shared belief that saying no to mining is not a selfish, negative or anti-development position, but an absolute necessity at this moment of converging social, economic and ecological crises.


who we are

If you are from frontline communities, a people’s platform, a non-profit organisation, or a national or regional network and are working towards a world beyond mining we would love to hear from you.
