As CNRG we defend the rights of communities affected by extractive industries.
We have seen how extractive industries expose rural communities to an avalanche of rights violations which include land and water grabbing, water and air pollution and direct violence by a combined force of state and corporate power.
Power responds to power. We believe the power of united, informed, organized and active communities will always prevail over injustices, state and corporate power. Using research, capacity building and advocacy as tools, we strengthen the power of communities to challenge destructive mining and extractive activities and hold governments and corporations accountable
