Mining

minero-web.gifMineworkers in Colombia have been the targets of death threats and assassinations for being trade unionists.

Small-scale gold and emerald miners have been murdered so that wealthy landowners and foreign companies can get their hands on mining concessions.

State-owned mining operations have been sold off to multinationals at a fraction of their true value at the insistence of the International Monetary Fund.

African-Colombian, Indigenous and other rural farming communities have been forced off their land and deprived of their livelihood to make way for the activities of British-based and other mining multinationals.
