Last week eleven organisations from Intag wrote to Chile’s President Michelle Bachelet outlining these impacts in a new letter.

The communities who call Intag home have been defending their lands from large-scale mining for over two decades and have been successful in ousting two multinational mining companies in that time. Despite suffering intimidation, the imprisonment of activist Javier Ramirez and other obstacles, they remain resolute in their opposition to mining.

There are many reasons for Codelco to stay out of Intag. These should suffice for any company that considers itself responsible… Intag’s forests and inhabitants should be a no-go zone.

-Carlos Zorilla, Decoin
