Download 201 KB

After almost 30 years of exploiting two large coal mines in northern Colombia, causing serious social and environmental damages to the adjacent communities, the multinational Glencore, through its subsidiary Prodeco, announced this month the closure of its mining operations in Colombia.

PAX is worried that Prodeco's decision implies that the mining company will also avoid their responsibility to the victims from the coal mining region. PAX wrote this open letter to the CEO of Glencore.
