︎ 010 NĀO às MINAS no BARROSO

NĀO às MINAS no BARROSO is a movement in defense of the natural, social and cultural heritage of the municipality of Montalegre.
The community is currently fighting against the interests of mining, which insists on taking the natural, social and cultural values of the re- gion (and the country), opposing any type of interest that is not its preservation, defense and protection.

We supported the community of Barroso in drafting an envioromental assessment to be distributed in the form of a leaflet for the forthcoming protest and events organised for the coming months.

This is a leaflet showing the potential impact of lithium mining in Covas do Barroso, visualising the plans submitted by Savannah Resources. The research and visualisations were produced by a team consisting of Godofredo Pereira , Jacob Bolton, and MingXin Li and myself in collaboration with local organisations and activists Unidos Em Defesa de Covas do Barroso, Minas Não, PNB - Povo e Natureza do Barroso Unidos pela Natureza Associacao Ambiental, Extinction Rebellion Portugal which planned the recent protests rally in Boticas.

The text was written by the local organisations. The design of the leaflet is by the fantastic Dayana Lucas.

This is the first of many more leaflets that we will produce in the near future in support of the anti-extractivist struggles in Barroso.
