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.

Canadian Mining in Latin America Forum and Debate at McGill

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!

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).

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

Fool´s Gold (Gold Mining in Costa Rica documentary)
 
29:50
Fool´s Gold (El Oro de los Tontos, 2011) is a 30-minute documentary produced by Costa Rican local activists and University professors, depicting an outrageous string of legal and political irregularities that almost allowed a Canadian Mining Company to destroy a rain forest system in Northern Costa Rica (the so-called "Crucitas Gold Mine"). In a last-minute decision, an Administrative Court revoked the mining permits, and instructed an investigation of Former President, and Nobel-Prize winner, Oscar Arias, who personally endorsed the project from its inception. This video also gained notoriety as two interviewed professors from the Universidad de Costa Rica were sued by the Company for a million dollars each! El Oro de los Tontos (2011) es un documental crítico de 30 minutos de duración producido por la Escuela de Biología de la Universidad de Costa Rica, con el apoyo de profesores y activistas locales. El vídeo muestra mediante un lenguaje satírico una serie de asombrosas irregularidades en el sistema político y judicial de Costa Rica que casi le permitieron a la compañía minera canadiense Infinito Gold destruir un ecosistema de bosque lluvioso en el norte del país, mediante un proyecto de minería de oro a cielo abierto llamado "Crucitas". En una decisión de último momento, un tribunal adminsitrativo anuló los permisos que se le habían otorgado a la empresa, y recomendó una investigación contra el Ex-Presidente de la República, y premio Nobel de la Paz, Óscar Arias Sánchez, quien personalmente promovió el proyecto con particular vehemencia. El documental también se destacó porque la empresa demandó a dos profesores universitarios a raíz de declaraciones dadas en él, pidiéndole a cada uno una indemnización de... ¡un millón de dólares!

Dirty Gold Tour

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

The UK strategy on the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles will be presented for discussion, identifying gaps or weaknesses and looking at their real potential to ignite change. The panel will explore how corporations will implement the UN Guiding principles, their impact on corporate risk management processes and ultimately whether they will result in changes in practices. Southern Communities'perspective on human rights due diligence will be taken into account to determine what needs to be changed and how the UN Guiding Principles can be used to address these issues. Finally, could the implementation of UN Guiding principles prevent, or not, human rights violations and environmental damage?

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.

Americans think of themselves as exceptional. The world used to think Canadians were exceptional. We were just Canadians. Today due to many reasons our reputation for who we are and what we stand for is tarnished. From the UN where we were denied a seat on the security council, to the Middle East where Canadian policy is one of division, the Africa and now Eastern Europe our foreign policy has gone from peace maker to instigator. Then there is Afghanistan, we went, we fought, we left. What for? what was the end mission? Afghanistan people died, we handed over POW to be tortured, Canadians died, and the veterans back home are still dying as suicide epidemic sweeps due to PTSD. The governments reaction? Check the news, it's not pretty. This brings us to the Northern Gateway Pipeline. This is unCanadian. What are Canadians today; our politicians from Toronto, Hamilton to Montreal and many others including Senators are not getting notice for the right reasons. Corporations from our banking sector to SNC-Lavalin and dozens more being investigated for bribery. Canada is an important player in the global mining industry. Nearly a quarter of the top forty mining companies in the world are Canadian-owned. There is a growing trend that has been observed in Central America toward repression and violence against those who protest mines and mining impacts. In the past two years, activists have been killed in Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador in relationship with Canadian mining companies. Canadian-financed companies, which dominate the mining sector in some countries - such as Guatemala or Ecuador -- are able to sustain strong lobbies regarding mining policy changes, often receiving substantial support from Canadian embassies abroad.

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.

Mining in Colombia and Latin America: Panel 1: Accountable Governance - Q&A
 
45:00
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 1: Accountable Governance This panel will start with an overview of the political economy of the region and the panorama in Colombia in relation to mineral extraction. It will move on to look at accountable governance mechanisms and how the Colombian government fulfils its due diligence obligations in the face of mineral extraction and multinational corporations. Finally the panel will hear from the Embera Indigenous Peoples of Colombia about the impact on their territory of multinational corporations and their struggle to protect their people, culture and territory. Q&A - Chaired by Eadaoin O'Brien - University of Essex 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.

Pacific Rim is a Gold Digger
 
02:48
World Bank tribunal gives green light to Canadian mining company's lawsuit against government of El Salvador WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A World Bank tribunal's decision on Monday to move forward with a Canadian gold mining company's controversial lawsuit against the government of El Salvador highlights a central failure of U.S. trade pacts to respect the national sovereignty of member countries. In 2009, Pacific Rim Mining filed the lawsuit under the rules of the U.S.-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), demanding "hundreds of millions" of dollars from the Salvadoran government, which rejected the Vancouver, B.C.-based company application for exploitation permits. El Salvador's Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources argues that Pacific Rim never completed the necessary process to obtain an exploitation permit, and local communities have demonstrated widespread opposition to the proposed El Dorado gold mine based on the environmental and public health risks of cyanide-leach mining.

CKUT 90.3fm Off the Hour: Panel on the Mining Industry and the Plan Nord
 
58:57
On February 9th, as Montréal's environmental activists chanted, marched, and were piled into police buses outside the Palais des congrés, we wound our way through the Palais's numerous security checkpoints to the nearly-deserted Salon des ressources naturelles, buried deep within the building. The result is a series of interviews with Salon participants and presenters. In a building surrounded by protesters but isolated from their cries of protest, we took a look at the mining industry from the point of view of those who live and work within it. This multimedia panel discussion examines the mining industry's discourse on mining. Live in CKUT's studio, we screened clips from the interviews for PAQG's Marie-Dominique Langlois, Cree activist/musician Pakesso Mukash, and environmental activist Cleve Higgins, and solicited their reactions, opinions, and often, a hearty reality check. The discussion spans the breadth of the controversy around the mining industry, from the rights of indigenous groups to the meaning of sustainability. Marie-Dominique Langlois is the co-ordinator at the Projet Accompagnement Québec Guatemala (paqg.org), which is co-organizing a conference on the human rights violations association with the spread of Canadian mining on March 21st and 22nd at UQÀM. Find more details here (http://defenddissenttour.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/colloque-plan-nord-plans-sud/). Pakesso Mukash is a Cree activist and musician in the band CerAmony (ceramony.ca). You can find the group's music on iTunes. Cleve Higgins is part of the Anti-Colonial Solidarity Collective and has conducted research on the mining industry in Canada and Latin America. He was involved in organizing the February 8th protest against the Salon des ressources naturelles.

Cocaine: Narcos, Sicarios and Peru (Part 1)
 
11:15
Pablo Escobar was the mastermind of drug trafficking and narco terrorism in Colombia during the 1980s. He transformed the city of Medellin into the cocaine capital of the world, and pioneered a model that almost every major criminal organization would later adopt. Countries around the globe are still grappling with the aftermath of Escobar's reign 20 years after his death, from the hired killers he trained as his army of underage hitmen to the remote cocaine labs and clandestine air strips in the jungles of Peru helping feed the world's hunger for coke. In part one of our three-part documentary, we meet two DEA agents who spent years on the trail of the elusive king of cocaine and became the basis for Netflix's show, Narcos.

Protesters block Panama highway over mining rights
 
01:15
http://www.euronews.net/ Indigenous protesters are blockading the Pan-American Highway in Panama to demand that a mining ban in their homeland remain in place. The protest began on Monday after the government approved a series of projects in the western part of the Central American country. Indigenous people say the plans would spoil pristine rainforest areas and force their communities to relocate. The country's president, Ricardo Martinelli, said he would not be strong-armed into changing his mind.
