News on our work to save the Shuar, their lands and their Nature from the Mirador Open Pit Copper and Gold Mine

We have been very busy over the last months working with the Shuar tribes in the Ecuadorian Amazon and with NGO´s and Human Rights Organizations in Quito to halt The Mirador open pit Copper and Gold Mine. The link below is an article just pubvlished and includes the map we have produced for circulation around the 70 Shaur villages which will be affected by the mine.

We have also created a Facebook Page which is doing really well with over 7,000 "likes". It is an information page with videos and articles.

We have created an Avaaz petition which has been signed by people from 71 countries. The first 1,000 signatures were, on Friday,  delivered to the Judge trying the case against the Government, brought by NGO's against the abuse of the Constitution in respect to the Rights of Nature. We are showing the Judge that the world is watching.

Here is a link to the petition. Please sign and share it wherever you can.:
