Campaign Update – Bangladesh: Obama Supports Dirty Coal

A recent article, “Displacing People For Profit: Obama Administration Supports Controversial Coal Project in Bangladesh,” written by Christine Shearer and Joshua Frank and published by Alert Net delves into the Obama administration's role in supporting the controversial Phulbari coal mine in Bangaldesh, despite years of protest by local Indigenous residents. 

In February, Global Response launched an international campaign supporting the Indigenous Peoples of Bangaldesh who oppose the Phulbari coal mine project.  To learn more and to send a letter, see the original Action Alert here.
