Vancouver-based Fortuna Silver is operating the Cuzcatlán Silver Mine in the Ocotlán Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico against the wishes of many local residents who are concerned about the depletion and contamination of scarce water resources. Fortuna’s mine has sown deep divisions in neighbouring communities and since 2010, several opponents to the mine have been ambushed and shot.

People in Ocotlán are appealing to Vancouverites to support them in their struggle to get Fortuna to withdraw from their territories.

Join us in warning Fortuna Silver’s shareholders of the high costs of ignoring human rights violations at their Cuzcatlán mine!!
