Women-led Kahao Yai Pha Dai Community Forest Conservation Group has been fighting to close down a limestone quarry mine which has harmed the Dong Mafai community’s health and wellbeing for over 26 years. They are determined to return the land to lush mountain forests which served as the community’s source of food and livelihoods. They recently had an important victory, occupying the mine site and reclaiming the land following the expiry of the mining permits - photos below. Mr. Lertsak Kumkongsak who organises with the group faces repeated verifiable death threats.
