Unsafe mining has caused environmental destruction and health problems in
almost every country around the world. Mining corporations are frequently
accused of unfair labor practices. These corporations also support
anti-environmental legislation and undermine democracy. Unsafe mining has
been associated with gross human rights violations and "environmental
racism" against native and indigenous peoples.

Mining-exchange is an international email listserv dedicated to helping
people who resist unsafe mining in their neighborhoods share information
about their strategies, mining, workers in mining industries, and mining
