Canadian Mining in Latin America Forum and Debate at McGill
 
01:22:56
MICLA, McGill's Research Group Investigating Canadian Mining in Latin America, Amnesty International and Journalists for Human Rights are proud to present a panel discussion and Q & A on Canada's Future in the Extractive Industry in Latin America: Exploring Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development. "Over the last twenty years, Canadian miners have become the most influential group within the continent's mining sector, developing between 1200 to 1500 projects in any given year. This presence has important consequences for the hundreds of Latin American communities and the countries that host these projects, but it also matters for Canadian citizens whose government provides vital support for the industry and whose pensions and investments help capitalize its work." micla.ca Produced by JHR McGill's TV Portfolio The Journalists for Human Rights McGill University Chapter is a group of students actively engaged in informing their community about human rights issues through media campaigns (print, radio, and TV) and other campus projects. visit http://jhrmcgill.wordpress.com/ or email us at [email protected] for more info, or to get involved!

Canadian Mining Corporations in Latin America: Solidarity Rally
 
11:43
"Trade agreements are a weapon against communities! Community consent over corporate bullying! La lucha sigue; the struggle continues!" In 2008, after years of violence, conflict, environmental degradation, and water pollution at the hands of mining companies, then-president of El Salvador Antonio Saca stopped issuing new mining permits. This decision has widespread support in El Salvador; a recent poll of the University of Central America (UCA) indicates that that 79.5% of Salvadorans are against any gold mining. In 2009, after pleading with El Salvador to reconsider, OceanaGold (then called Pacific Rim) sued the whole country through an "investor-state dispute settlement" (ISDS) case at the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the World Bank Group’s arbitration venue. The charge? "Loss of potential profits." These types of suits are increasingly possible under free trade agreements, including ones currently being negotiated by our government (for example: the TPP and CETA). If OceanaGold wins, the Salvadoran people will be required to pay $250-million (US), a morally reprehensible demand. Already, in the seven years that this arbitration has gone on, $12 million USD in legal costs have been incurred, which is enough to pay for over two years of adult literacy classes in El Salvador. Despite hearing that the verdict could be released "any day now" for over a year, we have been told with confidence by the lawyers on the case that the tribunal will announce its decision at noon on October 14th. Join us just a few hours later as we share the decision and call out Canada's complicity in this act of corporate bullying! ---------------- Civil society groups worldwide that support Salvadoran communities and organizations working on mining and environmental issues cheered today’s decision by the ICSID tribunal that Pacific Rim/OceanaGold’s $250 million lawsuit against El Salvador is without merit. In a ruling released today, the investment tribunal rejected the company’s claims and ordered it to pay $8 million in legal fees and costs to the government of El Salvador. “At a time of water scarcity, it is unconscionable for the global trade and investment regime to deny governments of water-stressed countries like El Salvador the policy space to protect local watersheds and ensure the realization of the human right to water,” says Maude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of Canadians. “Let us be clear: El Salvador has not ‘won’ anything in this arbitration. El Salvador had to pay more than $12 million just to defend itself. These legal costs are enough to pay for over 2 years of adult literacy classes for 140,000 people. At a minimum, OceanaGold should reimburse El Salvador for the costs of this suit, which never should have taken place. And it should also be responsible for the social and environmental damage left in its wake,” says Jamie Kneen of MiningWatch Canada. Recorded in Toronto, 14 October 2016.

The New Conquistadors: Canadian Mining Companies Battle for Panama's Natural Resources

Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/panama-canada-gold-copper-mining-protests-environmental-destruction "The New Conquistadors," a documentary produced through a collaboration between the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the CBC News, explores the battle between the Canadian companies and local communities in Panama. As Canadian mining companies seek to expand their presence in Central America, some Panama's indigenous peoples and peasant farmers worry that the mining could lead to deforestation, polluted water supply and the displacement of local communities—including the Ngobe people, Panama's largest indigenous group. The plan to unearth billions of dollars worth of precious metals is a boon for these Panamanian communities, according to the mining companies; they bring jobs and economic development to the developing countries. But for the peasant farmers and indigenous peoples, the rewards aren't worth sacrificing the environment. "The New Conquistadors" will air on CBC on June 18, 2012. This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Panama: The Canadian Conquistadors" (http://bit.ly/Kj4Qnm).

Mining for Gold in Haiti: Haiti Helped or Exploited by U.S., Canadian Mining Companies?
 
06:19
Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/haiti-gold-mines-foreign-companies-investment-government-distribution-wealth-poverty After years of rumors that gold mining companies were exploring in Haiti, Canadian and U.S. gold mining corporations now confirm they have permits to mine gold in more than 1,000 square miles in northern Haiti. Haiti's new prime minister says the estimated $20 billion worth of minerals in Haiti's hills could help liberate it from dependency on foreign aid and rebuild from the devastating 2010 earthquake. But many worry the gold mines will be a boom for foreign investors and a bust for local Haitian communities. Democracy Now! speak to Jane Regan, lead author of "Gold Rush in Haiti: Who Will Get Rich?" The report by Haiti Grassroots Watch was published Wednesday in The Guardian and Haïti Liberté. "You've got a perfect storm brewing whereby you're looking at giant pit mines in the north, in a country that's already environmentally devastated, and giant pit mines being run by Canadian and American companies," Regan says. "Most of the money that's made and most of the gold that's dug up will go straight north." (Modified from the original excerpt provided by Democracy Now!) This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Haiti: Sitting on a Gold Mine" (http://bit.ly/LSCNtf).

CIRDI, the Canadian International Resources and Development Institute, was originally mandated by Stephen Harper and has received over $40M of Official Development Aid money. It partners with mining companies and universities to provide policy and regulatory advice to countries where Canadian mining companies have major interests. Hosted at the University of British Columbia (UBC), this institute is positioned as a significant player in the powerful structures imposing an extractivist paradigm on sovereign nations. CIRDI has close ties to Canadian companies operating in Guatemala that have been accused of environmental and human rights abuses, such as Goldcorp. Mentioned several times in this video, Goldcorp is one of CIRDI’s strategic partners, and, by offering the company’s mines in Guatemala and elsewhere as test sites for CIRDI's initiatives, its executives hope to "export" their Canadian extractive governance experience on developing countries. Some of CIRDI’s other partners have close links to Tahoe Resources, HudBay, and mineral exploration firms also operating in Guatemala. Elsewhere in Latin America, Asia, and Africa, CIRDI proponents and Canadian diplomats are actively meeting with high-level officials to make strategic interventions that shift government policies to align with the profit oriented interests of Canadian extractive corporations. On 2014 and 2015 visits, the testimonies of members of Guatemalan communities affected by mining extraction were recorded, to understand more deeply how they have been affected by Canadian exploration and mining companies’ operations there. Those in this video have expressed, once again, that they wish to be left to pursue their own visions of development, without the pressures of Canadian mining companies along with banks, diplomats, and academics advocating for policies that give preference to extractive industries. Please join the communities affected by Canadian mining companies, and students at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and UBC, in their urgent call for the Canadian government to repeal CIRDI’s mandate and funding. The website stoptheinstitute.ca hosts information, concerns, critique, recommendations, and records acquired under freedom of information legislation about CIRDI and how it fits into a context of international plunder by Canadian mining companies and the government’s policy of economic diplomacy on their behalf.

Extracting Truths
 
04:40
This song is a collaborative piece by artists from across the Americas. It was created in the spirit of solidarity with the intent of calling attention to the abusive practices of Canadian mining companies. The idea for the project was conceived in Juanita Sundberg's Geography 495 class at U.B.C. The class is an innovative seminar that explores the politics of North-South solidarity in theory and practice, using Community Service Learning models that join thought with action. This year GEOG 495 is working in collaboration with the Vancouver-based Mining Justice Alliance to transform the classroom into a space of international engagement, reflection and action. Our central focus is solidarity with communities in Latin America affected by Canadian-owned mining companies. Vancouver: A Global Hub of Mining Injustice- On their websites and in press releases, extractive corporations claim to bring positive economic and social "development" for local communities. But—all over the world— local communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academics and even politicians have raised serious, credible, and widespread allegations linking Canadian and Vancouver-based extractive corporations to environmental devastation, human rights abuses, and denial of indigenous rights. Courageous members of affected communities are speaking out, but resistance to mining projects is often met with intimidation and violent repression. This booklet outlines how Vancouver-based mining projects in Guatemala, El Salvador, Tibet and Honduras have been indirectly and directly linked to threats, rape, disappearances, shootings, and murder of those who carry out community education and organization to oppose the mines. Tragically, Canadian mining corporations act with impunity; most governments and judicial institutions are unable or unwilling to effectively regulate transnational corporations, and those suffering harms outside Canada have no recourse in Canadian or international law. Worse still, Canadians actually finance this private corporate plunder though investment of public money. The Canadian government proactively partners with the mining industry, funding and insuring overseas operations, through both domestic institutions (like Export Development Canada) and the multilateral development banks. Public and union pensions have hundreds of millions of dollars invested in Canadian extractive corporations. How is it that in Canada and in Vancouver, so many of us unknowingly—but actively— support and benefit from the unjust practices of Canadian mining corporations? With gold at an all-time high, powerful mining corporations devote millions to greenwashing campaigns—spinning a positive public image. In Vancouver, mining companies accused of responsibility for water contamination and violent repression fund our hospital foundations, cancer centers, arts organizations and children's charities. Their names are on the buildings of our university campuses and on displays at the Vancouver Meanwhile, stories of devastation from mining-affected communities are rarely covered in mainstream media. In the long term, local people pay the price of water, land and air contamination, water scarcity, repression and conflict, while huge benefits flow to a small group of North American mining executives and shareholders. Together, we can confront these systemic abuses, and take action to support affected communities in their demands for peace, land preservation, secure livelihoods, and self- determination! video sources - This video was made in an educational setting for educational purposes. all that glitters isn't gold - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp4jBtL7kxs barrick gold environmental rehabilitation- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYPYv6kEzok al jazeera - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrAyMLpPsko, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCpYf8B1vYs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdDqmQ-6DBk goldcorp recruitment - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aotf5f2C6zc sipakapa no se vende - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1N8I54zong tambogrande: mangos, muerte, minería - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2pbZqfcQ8 violent evictions at el estor - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q20YxkM-CGI

The Dirty Gold Tour is a public education campaign featuring Salvadorean anti-mining activist Nelly Rivera, a leader of the anti-mining struggle against the Cerro Blanco mine in Guatemala. This mining project, financed by Canadian mining giant Goldcorp, is close to the border with El Salvador. Its environmental impact is not only expected to impact surrounding local communities in Guatemala, but to contaminate the water of the Lempa river, the main source of water for over three million Salvadoreans. The resource extracting industry is a pillar of Canadian economic expansion around the world. In Central America, Canadian mining investment has led to profound socio-economic change that has generated deadly social conflicts in local rural communities. Working in alliance with local governments mining companies foster forced displacement of local populations; co-opt democratic participation, and are linked to coercion and threats to personal security, repression of workers, contamination of drinking water, and destruction of the environment. During her visit to Canada, Nelly will be travelling through Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, and will engage with community and faith groups, students and policymakers to demand that Canadian mining companies be held accountable for their behavior overseas

Top 10 Countries With The LARGEST Gold Reserves!

Check out these 10 countries with the largest gold reserves in the world! This top 10 list features some of the richest and wealthiest countries on earth that have tons of gold bars stacked up somewhere! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "SURPRISING And Interesting Facts About Money!" video here: https://youtu.be/ONpChSPqVc4 Watch our "Most AMAZING Discoveries With A Metal Detector!" video here: https://youtu.be/45JveYKafVo Watch our "Most EXPENSIVE Diamonds In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/RcZATf3Lmb0 10.) India According to the World Gold Council, the Bank of India currently holds 557.7 tons of gold. It is one of the largest stores of gold in the world! This makes up 9.9 % of the country’s total foreign reserve. Foreign exchange reserves is money or other assets held by a nation’s central bank so they can back the national currency. India, home to 1.25 billion people, is the number one largest consumer of the precious metal. Furthermore, India is one of the most reliable drivers of global demand. For example, India’s festival and wedding season, which runs from October to December, has historically been a major market for gold. And probably, one of the most interesting facts about India and gold is that India rarely invests much in gold. This is because as a country, India operates under the belief that buying gold leads to a deficit. And their belief must be proving right as things also seem to be improving for India. For instance, if you look at the last few years, India has increased its gold reserves from 557.74 to 557.77. While this might not seem like a lot, India is also at its highest point in history! In addition to what the country holds, Indian households which are considered the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tons, which is worth about $800 billion. 9.) Netherlands In the past few years, the Netherlands has held 52% of its foreign reserve in gold. The Netherlands has a reported 612.45 tons. In 2016 it was reported that the bank was looking for a place to store all its gold because they were going to renovate the vaults and needed to moving it. The Dutch central bank is planning to move the country’s gold reserves from the center of Amsterdam to a new complex called the Cash Center. Like most countries, Dutch gold is also held in banks around the world to reduce risk. Security measures to guard the gold 24/7 have become a problem in Amsterdam. 189,000 kilos of gold will be moved at the beginning of 2022. Maybe this is one reason that over the last decade and a half, the Netherlands was selling off tons of gold in order to reduce its reserve. However, there weren’t that many buyers out there and they sold less than the country wanted. More recently the country has had less ambition to sell gold. Currently, the country holds the same amount of tons, 612.45 that they have over the last few years. However, the country has increased its percentage of foreign reserves to 61.2 %. 8.) Japan Japan is another country which had been increasing its gold reserves since the 1960’s. Their official gold holdings were reported at 765.2 tons. About 2.4% of Japan’s gold today is in foreign reserve. Historically, Japan has always held a bit more gold than other countries. This was true until 2011, when they began to sell some of their reserve in order to pump money into the economy after the tsunami and the following Fukushima nuclear disaster. But even with selling, Japan’s central bank has been one of the most aggressive practitioners of quantitative easing. For example, in January of 2016, it lowered interest rates below zero, which has helped fuel demand in gold around the world. 7.) Switzerland Prior to 1997, Switzerland was steadily building its gold reserves. In 1997, the decision was made to sell some of those reserves to bolster the Swiss currency and diversify the foreign reserves. The percent of foreign reserves in Switzerland is currently 6.7 %. Switzerland actually has the world’s largest reserves of gold per capita and currently has reported 1,040 tons. Over time, many citizens in the country started to feel like the bank was getting rid of too much gold. They then banded together with the “Save the Swiss” movement. However, once everyone was able to vote in 2014, the vote came to a no, and gold continued to be sold. During World War II, Switzerland became the center of the gold trade in Europe, making transactions with both the Allies and Axis powers. Today, much of its gold trading is done with Hong Kong and China. Around last year, the Swiss National Bank made a $5.9 billion profit, reportedly from its gold holdings.

Mining in Colombia and Latin America: Panel 2: Sustainable Development - Richard Solly

12-11-12 Human Rights Consortium http://www.sas.ac.uk/ http://events.sas.ac.uk/isa/events/view/12859/Mining+in+Colombia+and+Latin+America%3A+will+the+UN+Guiding+Principles+on+Business+and+Human+Rights+improve+accountability%3F Mining in Colombia and Latin America: will the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights improve accountability? Panel 2: Sustainable Development Sustainable development is a pattern of economic growth in which resource use aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come. This panel will discuss economic, ecological, political and cultural sustainability in relation to the mining of mineral resources, examining its impacts on a national and local level and asking what difference the UN Guiding Principles will make to companies risk assessments and impacted communities. Richard Solly - Colombia Solidarity Campaign (Chair) The UK will launch its initial strategy on implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in September 2012 and this conference will provide an opportunity to discuss and debate this strategy, to engage with the UK government on how it can best fulfil its commitment to 'Protect, Respect and Remedy', and with corporations on their ideas for the implementation of responsible mining practices and due diligence requirements. Issues of natural resource governance are invariably at the centre of development and human rights debates as the extractive sector represents a growing part of Latin American economies. In Colombia, the government has identified the mining and energy sector as a key component of its current National Development Plan and one of the 'backbones of the Colombian economy'. What changes can be made to take into account the voices of local indigenous, afro-Colombian and campesino communities? What are the challenges for companies investing in countries with poor human rights records and how are they meeting them? How is human rights due diligence seen from a Southern perspective? What difference could the UN Guiding Principles make and what concrete actions should governments be taking to improve the mining industry's environmental and social performance? Tackling these questions will be experts from a range of disciplines and key public bodies, including scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers, as well as representatives from the legal sector and mining industry. We are pleased to welcome indigenous and campesino community leaders from Colombia, including Embera and Awá indigenous peoples, to share the impact mining is having on their communities.
