not all of us are cowards, some women know what it means to be human.
Newmont Mining wanted Peruvian farmer Máxima Acuña de Chaupe to get off her land so they could build a giant, polluting gold mine, but she said no. They took her to court, she won, they harassed her, even sending a security team in and destroyed part of her home, and she is still there. This is what bravery looks like, this is what human beings do, stand up to pollution, corruption, thugs, stand up.
