The International Allies Against Mining in El Salvador call on our friends and allies to support the National Roundtable against Metallic Mining and mining-affected communities in El Salvador to take a stand against Canadian-Australian mining company OceanaGold.
Send a similar letter to the President of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim, demanding that he consider the World Bank´s supposed commitment to eradicating poverty and the counterproductive implications of the El Dorado mining project in this aspect. Again, these letters should be put on your letterhead, signed, and emailed by September 15th to sistercities.elsalvador@gmailcom
Sign this petition at SomeOfUs.org and tell OceanaGold to drop the case!
SOCIAL MEDIA: E-Resist Oceana Gold!
Visit the Australian or Canadian Embassy in your state or World Bank office with information about the case, demanding that they withdraw the lawsuit and respect the sovereignty of El Salvador. Similar actions will be taking place in Sidney, Australia on September 5th in front of the World Bank office, on September 15th in Washington DC in front of the World Bank offices, and September 17th in San Salvador in front of the World Bank office.
