Khon Rak Ban Kerd Group
Khon Rak Ban Kerd Group, which translates as “People who love their home”, is a community-based group working to address environmental rights violations arising from the negative impacts of the open-pit copper-gold mine in Thailand’s Loei province. It has held several peaceful gatherings in the area. Its members have repeatedly been targeted with judicial harassment, both from the mining company Tungkum. Co Ltd as well as from local authorities.
