Alyansa Tigil Mina works with our partners and members in various locations in the country, called Sites of Struggles (SOS). SOS are areas where people are campaigning against mining as they experience how mining destroy their mountains, divide their communities and threatens their lives and livelihood.
ATM strengthens the capacities of communities and organizations who have decided to protect their environment and oppose the entry of large-scale mining in their area. ATM assists the communities in their defense of their land and rights through free legal assistance, learning sessions, fact-finding missions, solidarity activities, networking and alliance-building and campaigns implementation.
In SOS where there are indigenous peoples, ATM works with the IP groups in upholding their rights for self-determination and for the sustainable development of their ancestral domain.
