Take Action!: call for solidarity with Q’eqchi’ communities as they continue their 50 year struggle against Canadian mining companies

Posted on

Under-Mining Guate


We’ve launched a call for solidarity with Q’eqchi’ communities in Guatemala who have been resisting violence from Canadian mining companies (most recently Hudbay Minerals) for over 50 years. On April 4th they’ll be bringing a landmark criminal case to court in Guatemala and I will be showing up on behalf of the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network and Breaking the Silence to bring the statement of solidarity as well as all signatures and endorsements we’ve gathered to the courthouse!

Please help us to reach 1000 signatures and to let these communities know that people around the world are paying attention, and are standing in solidarity with them in their long journey towards justice, towards the reclaiming of their territory, towards safety, peace and self-determination for their communities.
We have just over a week left to get almost 700 signatures! Please consider signing this solidarity statement and sharing it far and wide!
