(Español Abajo)

Last fall, U.S.-based transnational mining company Aura Minerals destroyed a 200-year-old community cemetery belonging to the indigenous Mayan Chortí community of Azacualpa in Honduras. The ongoing expansion of the San Andres gold mine now threatens to forcibly displace the Indigenous community of Azacualpa, contaminate vital water sources for nearby communities, and criminalize Indigenous leaders. Despite well-documented human rights violations, U.S.-based refineries continue to buy gold from this mining project.

On Wednesday, February 1 at 5:30pm CST/ 6:30pm EST, join us to hear directly from the Azacualpa mining resistance and to learn about actions you can take to participate in the struggle against destructive extractive projects in Honduras. Register in advance here

We hope to see you there!

En otoño del año pasado, la empresa minera transnacional estadounidense Aura Minerals destruyó un cementerio comunitario de 200 años de antigüedad de la comunidad indígena maya chortí de Azacualpa, en Honduras. La ampliación en curso de la mina de oro de San Andrés ahora amenaza con el desplazamiento forzado de la comunidad indígena de Azacualpa, la contaminación de fuentes de agua vitales para las comunidades cercanas y con procesos de criminalización en contra de liderazgos indígenas. A pesar de las violaciones de derechos humanos bien documentadas, refinerías con sede en Estados Unidos siguen comprando oro de este proyecto minero.
El miércoles 1 de febrero a las 5:30pm CST/ 6:30pm EST, únete para escuchar directamente de la resistencia minera de Azacualpa y para informarse sobre acciones que pueden tomar para participar en la lucha contra proyectos extractivos destructivos en Honduras. Para el cual pueden, inscribirse aqui

¡Esperamos verte allí!
