Acceptance speech by "Mama Aleta" Baun, who won the 2013 Goldman Environmental Prize for organizing hundreds of villagers to peacefully occupy marble mining sites in "weaving protests" on the island of Timor.
The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest prize for grassroots environmentalists. Each of the winners, chosen from the planet's six inhabited continental regions, demonstrate exceptional courage and commitment, often working at great risk to protect our environment. In the process, they inspire the rest of us to do the same.
