Yahoo Group and Blog
VIVAT International has created a forum for our members to post articles, news, and information regarding mining and its effects on the environment and local populations, as well as proactive responses regarding bettering mining practices worldwide.
Members are able to view uploaded articles and documents, view photos uploaded from other members, as well as upload their own documents and photos to the group.
It is the aim and hope of VIVAT to call international attention to the case of the Ribeira Valley in Brazil as a support for those struggling for their human rights there. We will continue to work with and for the Quilombo Communities and advocate for “Dams No” alongside our VIVAT members and other courageous activists in the Ribeira Valley. The blog “terra sim barragem nao” is managed by the Brazilian members.
