Protesters fight coal mining project in Bangladesh

For the last nine years the Committee to Protect Oil, Gas and Natural Resources in Bangladesh has organised protests in central London outside the AGM of coal mining conglomerate Global Coal Management Resources (GCM)...Socialist Party members joined the 2015 protest on 18 December outside plush offices adjacent to Hyde Park Corner...Despite the government repudiation, activists fear that GCM will get a deal with the Bangladesh government to begin coal mining in Phulbari. GCM appears to be continuing its attempts to raise funds for this operation.
