Hundreds of families could be displaced from their homes and have their livelihoods destroyed -- if mining giant Condor Gold gets its way in Mina la India, Nicaragua.
The British mining corporation wants to go through with a destructive gold mine -- despite fierce opposition from the local community.
The people of Mina la India have seen their ground water supply damaged and neighbours harassed. They know what they’re up against. And they’ve said they need the support of people around the world to win this fight.
Here’s how we can help stop this.
The International Finance Corporation (IFC, aka the private sector arm of the World Bank Group) is the second biggest investor in Condor Gold’s schemes and prides itself with investing responsibly.
So what’s it doing investing in a gold mine that could destroy an entire community?
If we convince the IFC to divest, we can help stop this destructive project from going ahead.
Condor Gold is a bully: it went as far as suing protesters in Mina la India.
But the community fought back -- and Condor Gold finally dropped its charges.
They won a battle. But the intimidation continues.
To win the fight against Condor Gold, the local community need all of us around the world to come together and stand with them to defend their home.
Can you sign onto our petition to get IFC to divest from the destructive mine?
SumOfUs members have stood up to support communities in their fight against the big mining companies before.
When mining giant Newmont harassed Máxima Acuña de Chaupe for defending her home against a gold mine, more than 160,000 of us stood with her. Thousands more chipped in for her support and legal fund.
Our community cheered on as Maxima won the “Green Nobel” for her heroic work stopping the mine last year.
Now, let’s stand with the people of Mina la India to protect their families and homes too.
