Overburden: mining and community resistance in Latin America

This project sets out to produce key advocacy tools with impacted communities and regional organisation OCMAL, which will:

  • analyse the role of UK and Canadian mining in Latin America, including value chains and investment flows for the mining industry;
  • detail the complex and transforming landscape of mining in the region, including the nature of conflicts, the impacts, the processes to defend and protect human rights;
  • and document community proposals to halt the expanding mining frontier.
