Weʼve raised £220 to support the people of Loma de Bacum who are protesting against a gas pipeline being built in their territories & facing violence
- Funded on Friday, 10th March 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
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.
