THEY SHALL NOT PASS!!! Picket Against Mining Fever in Colombia

1pm Friday 3 June, outside Colombian Embassy, London
3 Hans Crescent London  SW1X 0LN Nearest Tube: Knightsbridge

With the recent ever-increasing gold prices, and the 'investor friendly' climate in Colombia in recent years fueled by the Colombian government’s 'democratic security' policies, multinationals have been awarded mining rights to extensive areas of the country.  Many of these areas cover national parks, and lands inhabited by Indigenous, Afro-Colombian and peasant communities, who will be displaced to make way for the mining companies.  Not only are the environmental consequences for what is currently one of the richest countries in the world in terms of biodiversity devastating; vulnerable communities will lose their livelihoods and food security.

South African-based AngloGold Ashanti, the world’s third largest gold producer, is one of the major players in Colombia.  Enriched during the Apartheid era, it was awarded the Greenpeace Public Eye award for being The World’s Most Irresponsible Company, following its deplorable environmental and human rights record in Ghana, a country where it has been operating for many years. La Colosa is an AngloGold Ashanti mining project in Cajamarca, Tolima, Colombia, which would become the largest opencast gold mine in South America, using cyanide to process the gold ore.  It has been given the go-ahead by the Colombian government, despite being located within an area of forest reserve, and is facing fierce opposition by local communities.

ON 3 JUNE 2011 THOUSANDS OF COLOMBIANS WILL TAKE TO THE STREETS THROUGHOUT TOLIMA TO MAKE THEIR VOICES HEARD.  LET’S JOIN THEM IN SOLIDARITY AT THE COLOMBIAN EMBASSY IN LONDON

Bring banners, placards and let’s make a noise!

HAGAMOS QUE NO PASE!!! Plantón en Contra de la Locomotora Minera en Colombia

1pm Friday 3 June, Embajada Colombiana, Londres
3 Hans Crescent. Londres  SW1X 0LN  Metro más cercano: Knightsbridge

El creciente precio del oro a nivel mundial, y el 'clima amigable a los inversionistas' de los últimos años impulsado por las políticas de 'seguridad democrática' del gobierno colombiano, han permitido que las multinacionales mineras tengan titulos mineros para amplias zonas de nuestro país. Muchas de estas áreas cubren parques naturales, resguardos indígenas, comunidades Afro-colombianas y campesinas, que serán desplazadas para dar paso a las empresas mineras.  Las consecuencias ambientales para uno de los países más ricos del mundo en términos de biodiversidad serán devastadoras, y además estas comunidades vulnerables perderán sus medios de subsistencia y seguridad alimentaria.

La surafricana AngloGold Ashanti, tercera productora de oro a nivel mundial, es una de las principales mineras transnacionales en Colombia. Enriquecida durante la época del Apartheid, ganó el premio Ojo Público de Greenpeace por ser La Empresa Más Irresponsable del Mundo, tras sus antecedentes en Ghana, donde causaron irreparables daños ambientales y violaciones de derechos humanos. La Colosa es un proyecto minero de AngloGold Ashanti, en Cajamarca, Tolima, Colombia, que sería la mina a cielo abierto de oro más grande de América del Sur, usando cianuro para extraer el oro.  Ha sido aprobada por el gobierno Colombiano, a pesar de estar en reserva forestal, y tener una fuerte oposición por parte de las comunidades locales.

EL 3 DE JUNIO 2011,  MILES DE COMPATRIOTAS COLOMBIANOS SALDRÁN A LAS CALLES DEL TOLIMA PARA OPONERSE A LA LOCOMOTORA MINERA Y EL PROYECTO DE LA COLOSA.  UNÁMONOS EN SOLIDARIDAD CON ELLOS EL MISMO DIA FRENTE A LA EMBAJADA DE COLOMBIA

Traigan pancartas y avisos, y hagamos bulla!
