London Mining Network (LMN) is an alliance of human rights, development, environmental and solidarity groups working to hold the London-based mining industry accountable for its impacts around the world.
We are a small team of three part-time workers, as well as volunteers, an advisory body and trustees. We are a registered charitable incorporated organisation (charity number: 1159778).
In the midst of Covid-19, donations would help us build our resiliance and adapt to a new way of working. They would help pay for online campaigning tools, webinar hosting and live interpretation, and online educational resources, as we continue our solidarity with mining-affected communities, many of whom are dealing with the knock-on effects of the global pandemic.
Every donation we receive makes a huge difference, in normal times, this would...
Help us host a human rights environmental defender from a mining-affected community, so they can speak truth to power at a mining company's AGM, meet with politicans and speak to journalists, as part of an annual speakers' tour. Expenses include international and local travel, accommodation, and subsistence expenses. (This can cost up to £2000, a £30 donation could pay for a week's Oyster card)
Fund an educator to run a two-hour PhoneCycle or Life above the Mine workshop in schools and in the community (around £60)
Enable a researcher to travel by train to occasional conferences in Europe (This can cost up to £300, but a £20 donation makes a big difference)
Provide travel and lunch expenses for a volunteer (£10 a day)
Please consider supporting us via a monthly donation (which helps us budget more effectively for the comings months), or make a single, one-off payment. You can donate via Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) (You can pay with your card, PayPal or using a CAF account).
If you pay tax, please download and fill in a gift aid form so that we can claim 25p extra for every £1 you donate.
