Lanzamiento Casino del Extractivismo / Launching of Extraction Casino Report
September 11, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This event is a Colombia launch of Casino Extractivismo, a report that exposes 38 cases of mining companies that have been filing dozens of multi-million dollar claims against Latin American countries before supranational arbitration panels, demanding compensation for court decisions, public policies and other government measures that they claim reduce the value of their investments. In most of these cases, communities have been actively organizing to resist mining activities and defend their land, health, environment, self-determination and ways of life.
Project Director and Associate Fellow for Institute for Policy Studies’ Global Economy project Manuel Pérez-Rocha, who is also co-author of the report will be a forum participant.
