Global Day of Action against Mining

Yes to Life, No to Mining is calling on all members and allies to simultaneously join the Global Day of Action Against Mining by putting up banners in communal spaces and post them online, asserting that new, destructive, large-scale mining is not welcome in our communities.

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.

we stand 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 a means to guarantee the diverse forms of life on the planet and an absolute necessity at this moment of converging social, economic and ecological crises, rather than a selfish, negative or anti-development position.
