JATAM (Mining Advocacy Network) is a network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and a community organization concerning for human rights, gender, environment, indigenous people and social justice in mining, oil and gas industry issues.
Indonesia not only bears the destructive mining practices on its land and natural resources. But it also has a sad, long list of human rights violations including forced evictions, loss of livelihoods and violence against women and children.
JATAM is a Resistance, Rescue and Recovery organization. JATAM works with affected communities in many regions that are destroyed by mining, oil and gas activities in Indonesia. JATAM was born from the concern for the massive destruction of the environment and socio-economic of local communities due to mining, oil and gas industries.
JATAM National Meeting (Pernas) 2013 in Surabaya has formulated a new mandate. The mandate of JATAM 2014-2016 is fighting against the destruction by building a new production consumption model that is equitable and recycling.
JATAM fights against the destruction by building the consumption production that has a counter-power to recover and to be equitable. In addition, JATAM also performs the movement to reverse crisis in social and ecological dimensions.
