BHP Billiton’s IndoMet Project: Digging Deep into the Heart of Borneo

October 2014

For centuries, the indigenous Dayak peoples of Indonesian Borneo lived from the abundant forests and rivers that blanketed the region. Now, BHP Billiton is planning to build a series of massive coal mines that would destroy primary rainforest, deprive indigenous peoples of their customary land, and pollute water sources relied on by up to 1 million people.

Stop bankrolling coal

August 2014

Since 2005, the UK’s high street banks have poured at least £12billion into coal mining. Much of this is ordinary people’s money. By financing this dirty industry, banks are complicit in pushing
people off their land and destroying communities around the world. Coal is extracted and exported for use elsewhere, while many of the affected communities are among the 1.3 billion people who have no access to electricity.

Join with WDM in calling for banks to get out of coal.

Guide: Organising a photo stunt

May 2014

Stunts can be a creative way of getting a complex message across to the public, MPs and the local press. They can involve using props or incorporating some kind of fun interactive element to a stall you are running or getting people to dress up and take on characters. Stunts can be used to attract the general public to take action, or to encourage the local press to cover your story.

Guide: Running a great meeting

May 2014

There is no set blueprint for running a successful group, but there are some basic things you will have
to do and meeting regularly is one of them. Getting together as a group on a regular basis is important
so that you can talk, get to know each other and plan campaign actions and events. Meetings should be
empowering and people should come away feeling energised and excited about taking action.
