Gold hunters destroy human and natural life in Ecuador

In the north of Ecuador, the municipality of Buenos Aires is peacefully resisting an Australian mining company that wants to mine gold and copper in its mountains.

The residents are calling on the authorities to guarantee their human rights and to respect their decision against mining.

In northern Ecuador, in the Urcuquí district of Imbabura province, the discovery of gold has caused a frenzy.
Thousands of prospectors have invaded the area without any authorization.

They destroy the peaceful life of the inhabitants and, through the use of highly toxic mercury and cyanide, seriously damage agriculture and poison streams and rivers.

Now the greed for the shiny metal has apparently also seized politics, authorities and companies: gold and copper are supposed to be mined in a large-scale opencast mine – supposedly legally.

The community has been affected by a new invasion since April 19, 2021.

esidents complain that the HANRINE company, a subsidiary of the Australian company Hancock Prospecting, entered the community with a column of trucks.

The staff would intimidate the residents and claim to have all the permits necessary for mining.

Ecuadorian human rights organizations warn that the mining company HANRINE does not have a permit. In addition, according to the state audit office, the concession was awarded to the company when the mining cadastre was closed.

Regardless of whether it is illegal or supposedly legal mining, the residents of Buenos Aires are determined not to allow gold and copper mines.

So far, they have prevented the convoy from passing through with a peaceful protest (see video).

Please support their urgent letter to the Ecuadorian authorities and the mining company.

They should know that the world is watching and that they must respect the decision of the church.

The world looks at what is happening in Ecuador.

And I mean… “We will defend the rivers, the streams, the mountains, the animals and everything that exists in our community in any case,” the residents reaffirm their peaceful protest.

Since 2017, they have repeatedly spoken out against mining.

With the corporations came one catastrophe after another for the local people: a criminal network had emerged around the illegal mines in which a number of crimes were committed – such as murder, forced prostitution, human trafficking, money laundering and smuggling, around 10,000 armed members and criminal groups are mining for gold in the region, according to official information.

In addition to the destruction of the environment and livelihoods, there is violence, lawlessness, alcoholism and prostitution.

The now planned so-called legal mining, the industrial mining of gold and copper in large-scale opencast mining, will make the problems even worse, people fear. The Hanrine company has concessions covering an area of ​​around 23,000 hectares.

54,000 tons of soil are to be moved every day, in Tundayme almost 30,000 tons of toxic waste are left behind every day.
The mega-project is expected to produce around one million tons of copper and 500,000 ounces (a good 14 tons) of gold by 2036.

Please sign the petition, maybe we can alleviate part of this human and natural disaster

Two good news today, from France

1. Hunter’s hut destroyed in arson

Apr 18 -VIA: La Provence

Yesterday morning, at about 9 o’clock, on chemin Blanc in Sérignan, the firemen were engaged to put out a fire on a hiking trail.

A hunters’ hut was the prey of the flames. The shelter of about fifty square meters burned down completely.

The criminal nature of this fire was not ruled out by the gendarmes. Should it be seen as a revenge against the hunters?
No one knows.

In any case, this fire occurred while last Friday, a doe pursued by poachers to Orange was found near the Pôle emploi agency.

Wounded, the animal did not survive despite its transport to a veterinarian.


And I mean…Motives are not of interest, only the result.
And the result is very gratifying – one less criminal hunting establishment

2. Cut trees destroy hunting lodge

VIA: Chassons a pro hunting website-Report

Neufmanil is a small village of 1085 inhabitants located in the Ardennes north of Charleville-Mézières.

A few days ago, the hunters of the commune found two cut trees lying on their cabin. The trees were cut at the base so that they fell on the cabin.

The hunters were obviously very surprised by this discovery and believe that this act of vandalism is the work of professional loggers.

The mayor of Neufmanil filed a complaint with the gendarmerie in Nouzonville.

A few days before January 17, an anti-hunting tag took place on the gate of the Neufmanil soccer stadium.
A new act of vandalism that shows how hunting has become the target of radical activists.

And I mean…For hunters, this means vandalism when two trees render a hunting lodge harmless!!

But when hunters with an aggressive pack of hunting dogs drive a whole fox family out of their house and, motivated by sadistic basic motives, murder all family members, they call it “hobby”, “nature conservation”, “species protection”. , “Epidemic protection” or “tradition”!

Thanks to the professional activists!
