How Corporate Courts Work: The Case of the Amulsar Gold Mine

 

Global Justice Now and War on Want went to Armenia in June 2019 to find out more about how the locals have been resisting Lydian’s toxic plans by blockading the entrances to the mine and how corporate courts can be used by multinationals to force governments into submission. Listen to our new episode of the Global Justice Now podcast to hear from locals and activists in Armenia, and UK-based campaigners about what we can do to support the campaign and stop corporate courts.

What is the 'hostile environement'?

 

A year ago, we saw story after story in the news about how people of a whole generation of Commonwealth citizens, who’d been living in the UK for decades were left homeless, wrongly detained, denied their legal rights and threatened with deportation. A year on from these brutal events, it’s important to understand that they didn’t just happen because some people didn’t have the ‘right documents’ – they were a direct result of the government’s horrific approach to immigration enforcement also known as the hostile environment policies instituted by Theresa May in 2012.

In this very first episode of the Global Justice Now podcast, I’ll be looking into what exactly the hostile environment policies are and how they affect people and society as a whole. We’ll also be hearing more about why they came about and what we can do to challenge them.
