On March 2, 2012 courageous men and women from the communities of San Jose del Golfo and San Pedro Ayumpuc joined together in opposition to the construction of a gold mine near to their homes. Their concern is that the US-owned mining operation will negatively impact the air and water, damage crops and affect the health of their families and neighbors.

Now, as the movement approaches its second anniversary, we want to honor its members for their commitment to non-violent resistance, as well as for their success in defending human rights and the environment.
