Banks, hedge funds and pension funds based in Britain are bankrolling the extraction of fossil fuels all over the world. Many of these dirty energy projects are wrecking communities and fuelling climate change while doing nothing to increase energy access for local people. Join us to demand energy justice.
On Thursday 31 October, South Lakeland WDM hosted an Indonesian activist who is opposed to the expansion of open-cast coal mining in his country. Hendrik Siregar is the co-ordinator of JATAM, the Indonesian mining advocacy network which works with communities affected by mining.
Hendrik Siregar was joined by Alex Scrivener from WDM who explained the role of our Carbon Capital campaign in reigning in this dirty energy production.
About South Lakeland WDM
The South Lakeland World Development Movement (SLWDM) is a local branch of the World Development Movement. We aim to campaign for justice for the world’s poor.
The group recognises that rich countries, international institutions and big business knowingly make decisions that are leading to injustice and inequality on a massive scale. It does not have to be like this. We have both the wealth and the means to end poverty.
