Close down the IMARC conference, and replace it with a conference working alongside communities on the frontline of mining, environmental protectors and those who attend IMARC.
- Governments and corporations can – work with us to organise a different conference.
- There’s many reasons why this is unlikely to happen. The growth/profit mindset of capitalistic governments and business is no accident. Under the current economic paradigm, corporations need to continuously expand and grow their profits if they’re to survive – creating a growth at all costs mindset. However, this paradigm doesn’t take into account that this continuous growth and expansion takes place in the context of a finite planet with finite resources that can’t be continuously plundered. We invite the governments and corporations to break out of this competitive profit-driven cycle and join us in conversation and action!
- People and communities can: Blockade IMARC while it continues to be a pro-extractivist conference, create our own spaces for conversations, and elevate frontline voices. For inspiration, check out the recordings of the Beyond Mining: Protecting Land, Water and Life Conference from 2020.
