We couldn’t be more excited about our first week of fundraising! Thank you to everyone who has helped out, whether through sharing our cause or donating. An important part of our efforts is keeping our community of supporters connected to the Na Nong Bong community through weekly updates. Below is an animated video created by CIEE students who worked and studied with the Na Nong Bong community. The video tells the story of the role of the gold mine in the the village’s history from the villagers’ perspective, and asks the questions, “What if you could prevent this from happening in your own community? Is the goldmine worth the destruction of our way of life, is it worth yours?” We can begin to answer these questions through your support in our mining resistance campaign.
