Here is link to a pamphlet is designed to talk to the demands for the Right to Say No! Download the pamphlet for free and get up to date on the whats been happening in the Southern African Campaign and see a summary of the provisional discussion document to the global campaign. In addition there is more information on the treaty alliance as well as on other important developments pertaining to law from below in the fight for the right for free prior and informed consent.
 
The pamphlet indicates that FPIC should not be relegated to a risk management exercise. Rather, FPIC, should be the basis upon which the relationship between the community and company is built. The role of the state in enforcing this right is crucial, but not a prerequisite for building more equitable negotiating and bargaining positions between the affected communities and the developers.
