A how-to guide for resisting mining and extractivism anywhere and everywhere.
Written by Carlos Zorilla, a community organiser and anti-extractive campaigner from Intag, Ecuador, this is a how-to guide for resisting mining.
Distilling Carlos and his community’s experiences, drawn from several decades resisting a copper mine in Ecuador’s cloud forests, this guide is a key tool for any community that finds itself threatened by mining. It includes a discussion of:
- Early warning signs- is your community being considered for mining?
- How to avoid community division and counter corporate divide-and conquer tactics before mining occurs.
- The importance of documentation, legal challenges and building networks to stop mining projects.
