Defend UNESCO Heritage Site from gas pipeline

Prevent the Ukok Plateau gas pipeline

Herodotus called this place "the pastures of heaven." And its all at risk!

The Altai people are working feverishly to protect the ancient and fragile sacred cultural heritage of global importance, including mummies preserved in permafrost, from being laid waste by a gas pipeline that, according to independent assessments, provides no net economic benefit to Russia, but immeasurable loss of human heritage in one of the last truly pristine environments on Earth.

Your donation, large or small, funds the preventive efforts of Altai leaders who are dedicated to protecting the ancient Altai cultural/environmental heritage for future generations.

As part of the great transformation of Russia from Communism into Capitalism, carefully stewarded indigenous lands have been targeted for exploitation by corrupt individuals and officials.

I have been invited to present at a national Russian conference on anti-corruption in Novosibirsk in June. I will speak on the effectiveness of traditional Altai communal/community values for preventing corruption and the necessity to empower community awareness for create innovative solutions.

Then Carol will continue on to Altai to meet with community leaders to discover how international support can most effectively leverage the strategies they continue to develop.

The current, most urgent issue is to prevent the construction of an economically and environmentally disastrous gas pipeline directly through the extraordinarily fragile Ukok Plateau UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your donation is directly applied to the ongoing efforts, large and small, of Altai indigenous leaders to protect their traditional and sacred lands from desecration.

We are proud to announce that Alan, who won top honors at a regional throat-singing contest during the winter, has been invited to Spain to perform. This is a MAJOR opportunity for this promising young man. However, he needs your help to get there.

Even a small donation makes a huge difference as Alan dedicates his life to service through the recovery of his powerful, sustainable indigenous culture. The Altai culture was repressed during Communism, and is in even more need of protection as the juggernaut of privatization threatens traditional ways,
