The running crowdfunding campaigns for justice
Help Mexican citizens fight GM corn
The country where corn was born thousands of years ago is now at risk of losing its unique biodiversity. Big companies like Monsanto are fiercely lobbying their way into Mexico to grow genetically modified corn at a commercial level. So far, a broad coalition of Mexican citizens, farmers and scientists has successfully prevented this from happening. However, their financial resources are limited. Your contribution will give them a fair chance.
Save rhinos from new polluting coal mine
The greatest concentration of rhinos in South Africa and the health of its rural citizens are under threat. Mining company Ibutho Coal has put in an application to mine coal on the border of the pristine iMfolozi Wilderness Area, part of the last 1% of true wilderness left in South Africa. You can help fund the legal action to stop this from happening.
Stop land grabs and deforestation in Uganda
John Muyisha and his community in Kalangala, Uganda, have lost their land. One day, BIDCO, a Kenyan company, arrived and told him that the land was now theirs. Bulldozers came that flattened the ancient forest and John’s coffee plants. The company planted oil palms instead. With just 2 acres left to make a living, John and his community are now fighting for the right to their land. Your contribution will give them a fair chance.
