It introduces a new joint project with USPG on mining and solidarity with churches in countries where human rights and environmental solidarity are threatened by mining companies’ activities. It also notes a new course available from EMC West Midlands and Black Country. And, as always, there’s a roundup of news and resources from areas of interest.
