The Corrib gas field and Rossport in Co Mayo are among the thousand entries on the Global Atlas of Environmental Justice, just published.
So many of the world’s conflicts are sparked by a grab for minerals, land, or forests by large multinationals, often with the assistance of government.

Ecological conflicts are increasing as the demand for minerals increases, but this is often to the detriment of poor, marginalised and indigenous communities, said Professor Joan Martinez- Alier, who led the team responsible for the Atlas and its amazing collection of information at www.ejatlas.org
