Popular Resistance to Transnational Mining in Latin America

Mega-mining and its effects on the environment, vulnerable populations, and trans-national human rights law

with Dr. Mirta Antonelli, Professor of Social Discourse Theories, Universidad Nacional de Cordoba, Argentina.

Mirta Antonelli is a professor at the National University of Córdoba, and co-editor of the book Mineria Transnacional, Narrativas del Desarrollo y Resistencias Sociales (Biblos, 2010).

Transnational corporate mining in Latin American is addressed from three perspectives:

  1. “Glocal” strategies of transnational corporations to exploit nature
  2. Asymmetrical corporate and national alliances
  3. Mobilizing and organizing resistance.

Learn about the value of the commons, new strategies to protect human rights, and transnational violence as people defend their water and land.
