Today LAB is launching a Crowdfunding appeal for £10,000 to enable us to continue our major new project The Heart of Our Earth – Community Resistance to Mining in Latin America.
The project includes a printed book (to be published in 2022) and a website which we will launch soon and update continuously as our research progresses. But the website will continue long after the publication of the printed book, carrying further news, updates, and multimedia content.
The Heart of Our Earth, like many projects, was set back by the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which made research in the field difficult or impossible. But we are now determined to proceed, identifying researchers and informants in each country where there are ongoing mining conflicts and interviewing via Zoom, WhatsApp and other media.

If you would like further information, to help as a researcher, translator or volunteer on the project, please email us here.
