Villagers suffer at the hands of Mozambique LNG gas development under consideration by US Ex-Im

(Medium, Washington, 15 October 2016) Friends of the Earth USA conducted a field study of the impacts of the development of liquefied natural gas on rural communities and their lands in northern Mozambique, a project considered for financing by the U.S. government Export Import Bank. Friends of the Earth U.S. is working with Justi├žia Ambiental/Friends of the Earth Mozambique and the Center for Biological Diversity to discourage Ex-Im Bank from supporting this project. Not far from the city of Pemba, Mozambique, villagers clamored to tell their stories of threats and lost land and livelihoods. Read the report here.
