A brave grandmother in Peru has stared down the biggest gold mining company in the world for more than 10 years, refusing to give up her land.
But Máxima Acuña faces her biggest challenge yet -- a judge's ruling where she could lose everything -- and she’s asking for our help.
Newmont Mining has tried every trick in the book to get Máxima out of the way -- she’s been beaten, threatened, even had part of her home destroyed. But she hasn’t budged, refusing to let her home become part of a giant, polluting gold mine.
Now they’re dragging her to court, and her legal bills are piling up. Her lawyers are working on a shoestring. And if they lose: she may be thrown off her land.
Our community has supported Máxima for years, and now it could all come down to this.
Will you help this grandma take down a mining Goliath?
