Most of the work is done by volunteers, but we do have costs: a part time Coordinator, communications and website etc. This permits us to undertake essential advocacy and networking. (S)he maintains essential relations with our friends and contacts, organises and conducts advocacy, monitors the press and other sources, and needs to visit our partners in Peru and continental Europe. We also need to keep our email and website systems going.
So we invite you to become a ‘Friend’ and give what you can, on a regular basis! We will see that in addition to the newsletter, as Friends you are kept in touch with the PSG and our goals and concerns.
You can donate via PayPal using your PayPal account or your debit/credit cards. You can make a one-off annual payment or monthly payments.
In Peru, poverty is rising for the first time in nearly twenty years. Inequality, coupled with corruption at the highest levels, is taking its toll, especially on the poorest, and is hampering sustainable development.
Human rights defenders are doing what they can, but they are increasingly targeted. They face threats, violence, judicial harassment through dubious penal charges, and even death. Often, they are just ordinary people seeking to protect their land and environment from intrusion by large mining firms.
Many new laws and regulations are being formulated on the environment, oil and gas, mining, water. Corporations increasingly will need to take into account and report on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues. We need to keep our readership informed on such developments.
If you appreciate what we do, please join us by becoming a Friend and donating regularly. We do need a predictable annual income. Even a small amount each month, can make a big difference. But if you prefer a one-off donation, we should be delighted to receive it: use the button below.
Thank you, we really appreciate it.
