Armenian Environmental Front Civic Initiative
On 30 July, 2019, British “War on Want” and “Globarl Justice Now” NGOs announced about their support to the fight against Amulsar gold mining project initiating a global petition against the ISDS. The threats by “Lydian” offshore company to bring the ISDS case and claiming enormous money are qualified by them as a “poisonous attack towards democracy”.
This year in June they visited Armenia and shot a film about Amulsar fight under the slogan of “Save Amulsar”. The film is entitled “More Precious Than Gold: community resistance v corporate courts” in English.
The representative of “Globarl Justice Now” NGO James Angel said, “When in Armenia the locals are determined to protect their land area and water, what is left to do here in the UK is to join them and to voice about the poisonous attack against the democracy in Armenia by a UK-registered mining company.”
