Representatives of the collective “Putaendo Resiste” from Chile’s central region speak about their long struggle to declare themselves “Chile’s first territory free of mining” and how that process has recently been made even more complicated due to COVID-19. MiningWatch Canada will also briefly update on the project and its links to Canadian capital. Over the last decade, Canada has become the most important foreign investor in mining in Chile.
