"We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."

We are a group of people advocating a set of reforms to mining, based on twin principles of community ownership and custodianship of minerals, our natural resources. We believe mining can be done responsibly, and keeping in mind future generations of Goan citizens, who can benefit from it too.
