DocuLatino 4

CATAPA presents - from February 14th until March 15th - DocuLatino IV, a Latin American documentary festival. This edition puts forward the problems of the gold mining and oil industry.

While big transnational corporations make lots of profits, countries in the Souts are left with a huge social and ecological mess. Local ecosystems are devastated, rural communities lose their farmland, toxic products poison the drinking water for years. The consequences are desastrous, and often irreversible.


Mining in Paradise?: the results

You or your organisation has perhaps signed CATAPA's no-go zones for mining-petition. Thank you very much for this. You supported the farmers and environmental organisations of four provinces in North-Peru, which try to prevent mining activities in their area. Because of the fact that mining companies harm human rights, cross local development plans and threaten the most bio-diverse area in the world, the tropical Andes, as this may cause irreparable damage. Below you find an extensive list of achievements of our campaign.
