From Marikana to Mariana: how to face mining crimes? – Perspectives, challenges and popular proposals in the face of mining violations

Roundtable
Aug 11 2016  13:00 - 15:30

The grave impact of extractives industries on the environment and human rights is nothing new. However, the trend in most regions is to the inflation of licencing and expansion of mining activities rather than to a reduction. In addition, the brutality of the repression against social protest that local communities affected are facing is growing. What kind of strategies have we been using as civil society groups and what are the opportunities and challenges that we need to use and tackle in the next future?
