Watch the toolkit launch of Behind the Scenes of Extractives: Money, Power & Community Resistance at this year’s CSW65 interactive workshop, “Follow the Money: Activist Tools for Challenging Extractives” led by JASS and Count Me In! Consortium partners.
The workshop challenged the meaning of ‘development’ to expose the links between extractives, power and money. The conversation, led by toolkit creators and women land defenders – Mela Chiponda (Zimbabwe), Laura Zúñiga (Honduras) and a woman activist from Philippines – spotlighted the inadequacies of current mechanisms to protect indigenous communities and the dangers faced by women land defenders. Together, we explored effective and safer strategies for organizing and advocacy from the local to the global level.
The toolkit is available for download in English, Spanish and French at https://justassociates.org/en/res…
