Insights Fall 2013: Activists Become Targets in the Struggle for Resources – and Rights
The fight for social justice is not for the faint of heart. This edition of Insights is a powerful reminder of that fact, bearing witness to the tremendous courage of our partners, whose activism often puts their lives at risk. Many courageous individuals have lost their lives. Because supporting the legal rights of our partner communities is a fundamental part of our work, Grassroots International awards grants to a number of organizations whose sole purpose is to defend those who engage in resource rights activism; to document human rights abuses; and to protect individuals involved in social justice movements.
