Damocracy: An international coalition of groups, including Root Force, striving to debunk the myth of dams as clean energy. While large dam projects worldwide are promoted as sources of renewable energy, in reality they cause irreversible damage to nature, people and cultures around the world.
The Art of Dismantling: The Art of Dismantling (chrisautonomousmusic(dot)org) is a collective that helps form alliances between artists and activists, and provides educational workshops (including direct action trainings).
International Rivers Network: International Rivers works to protect rivers and rights, and promote real solutions for meeting water, energy and flood management needs. This site has lots of good anti-dam information and resources.
MiningWatch Canada: MiningWatch Canada (infominingwatch(dot)ca) addresses the urgent need for a co-ordinated public interest response to the threats to public health, water and air quality, fish and wildlife habitat and community interests posed by irresponsible mineral policies and practices in Canada and around the world. In addition to advocating for change on the policy level, MiningWatch also supports communities affected by mining.
Rising Tide North America: Rising Tide is an international network born out of the conviction that corporate-friendly and state-sponsored “solutions” to climate change will not save us. Rising Tide North America’s strategy is based on a no-compromise approach of stopping the extraction of more fossil fuels and preventing the construction of new fossil fuel infrastructure.
