Colombia Solidarity Campaign London Branch Meeting 7pm Tuesday 15 May
A documentary about the proposed la Colosa open cast gold mining project, produced by Bertram Doll and Helena Sala. La Colosa is a project being explored by London-listed AngloGold Ashanti in Cajamarca, an agricultural community nestled in the central Andean mountains of Colombia . Beneath Cajamarca is one of the world's largest gold reserves discovered in the last decade. If the mine goes ahead, a unique ecosystem will be devastated, and strategic water sources that are crucial for the livelihoods of thousands of Colombians will be lost forever.
Bertram and Helena are coordinators of "Derecho a Ver" (The Right to View), an NGO dedicated to organizing itinerant screenings of documentaries on the theme of human rights around Colombia.
