Help us save the Norwegian fjords

The Norwegian governments and environmental authorities are allowing mining companies to dump million tons of mining waste in our prestine Norwegian fjords.

Førde fjord in western Norway is one of Norway's cleanest and richest fjords and is also home to several endangered species. The company Nordic Mining wants to dump 250 million tons of mining waste into the fjord for the next 50 years.

In Northern Norway the company Nussir wants to start a copper mine. Waste, equivalent to 17 truckloads per hour for 20 years, will be dumped in the Reppar fjord, which is an important area for indigenous Sami people and also habitat to salmon and cod.

Local people, environmentalists and others want to prevent these harmful projects and are willing to commit civil disobedience for the future of the fjords.

Sign up if you also want to pledge to be willing to participate in nonviolent direct actions(NVDA) against the mining companies, to protect the Norwegian fjords.
