Resisting Mining Bookclub

Resting Mining Book Club

Our Resisting Mining Book Club puts authors, academics, and activists in conversation with friends and supporters of London Mining Network. At each event, we bring you a presentation and discussion with the author (or editor) of a different book that deals with mining, community resistance, and/or related issues. Every event is free (although we always welcome donations), online, and open to all. Below, you can see the list of upcoming and past book club events – click the image to see more info.

In most cases, we will be able to email a PDF copy of the book to everyone who registers!
