What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

Much like the situation facing indigenous people in Dakota, the Loma de Bacum community, in North West Mexico is facing State sponsored violence so that a new gas pipeline can be constructed without their consent.

The pipeline would permanently affect 90 kilometres in the collective territories of the 8 Yaqui communities in Sonora, Mexico. Anabela Jeka Carlon Flores, a qualified lawyer and someone InsightShare has been working with since 2010, is in serious danger after a recent episode of violence.

The local and regional political situations are complex and fast-changing. Please read the statement released by the Traditional Authorities of the town of Bacum: http://bit.ly/2fERkx5.

All donations will go towards food costs to support the communities in Loma de Bacum as they resist the imposition of the pipeline.
