A Twitter storm in defense of the Shuar Arutam People
The Shuar Arutam People are composed of 47 communities (12,000 inhabitants), whose territory covers an area of 230,000 hectares. Most of their territory has been concessioned to mining companies without respecting their right to free, prior, and informed consent. Some of these companies include: Solaris Resources (Canada), SolGold (Australia), ExplorCobres S.A., EXSA (a subsidiary of Chinese-owned, Canada-based Corriente Resources) and Aurania Resources (Canada).
