Statement in solidarity with the decolonial struggle of the Palestinian people


During the Second Thematic Social Forum on Mining and Extractivism, held in Indonesia in October 2023, representatives of communities and organizations from all over the world that fight against mining and its impacts came together to share, learn and formulate strategies relating to the right to say ‘no’ to extractivism.

At the end of the gathering, members of the Yes to Life, No to Mining network and other participants expressed their solidarity with the people of Palestine and its struggle for self-determination by means of a statement making the connection between  colonialism, mining, militarization and war, as well as the fundamental need of unity of all who suffer their consequences and seek to defeat them.

The Statement is still open for signatures here.
