EJ Atlas: Lote Ocho – El Estor, Lake Izabal, Guatemala

From the El Estor page of the Environment Justice Atlas

After decades of resistance against HudBay minerals and other firms, including court cases in Guatemala and Canada, the local Mayan Q’eqchi’ community managed to stop nickel mining in 2020 officially.

The Environmental Justice Atlas is a great resource and it has updated their page on the struggle relating to the community of El Estor against the Fenix Mine.

You can read their page relating to this struggle here Lote Ocho – El Estor, Lake Izabal, Guatemala.
