As a lawyer working for the Mining Advocacy Network (JATAM), Muhammad Jamil seeks to protect the communities that are affected by the mining business by using advocacy and litigation tools to hold corporations that damage the environment accountable.

This work isn’t without difficulties. ‘The main obstacles faced by Indonesian environmental lawyers  is that many victims in mining areas are difficult to detect and reach, due to limited access to transportation and inadequate internet. Some of them are also forced into silence due to intervention and terror from the government and corporations. This is compounded by the lack of media coverage and the environmental lawyers to represent clients through the whole country.’
