A public meeting on mining in the North West will be held online this evening (Wednesday).
People Before Profit activists Donegal and Tyrone are hosting the meeting on Zoom to discuss concerns over the impact of goldmining.
Members are set to raise concerns about the environmental impact of materials and methods used in the mining process.
A number of mining developments are currently located across Donegal.
“People Before Profit stand fully with all activists against the devastating impact mining will have on the health of people and the environment,” said a statement from the group.
“Our natural environment in the North West is earmarked to be exploited for profit and greed. We need to protect our land, waters and air, our health is so inextricably linked to the health of the environment.
“Together, with communities leading the way, we can fashion the sustainable solutions to one of the biggest threats to humanity. Environmental destruction for profit.”
The People Before Profit meeting will hear from Fidelma O’Kane (Save Our Sperrins) Toni Devine (Inishowen Against Goldmining) and Louise Taylor (PBP member and environmental activist).
