Environmental Justice Atlas –

The EJ Atlas maps environmental justice struggles from around the world. It aims to make community mobilization more visible and advance the case for corporate and state accountability.

The Latin America Observatory on Mining Conflicts (El Observatorio de Conflictos Mineros de América Latina, OCMAL) was founded in 2007 in Bolivia by a range of organizations seeking to develop resistance strategies and alternatives to mining in Latin America. The website provides essential information about mining projects throughout Latin America.


The Central American Alliance against Mining (Alianza Centro Americana frente a la Minería, ACAFREMIN) was founded in 2017 to strengthen solidarity ties to further the struggle for a Central America free of metallic mining. The website provides a map on extractive projects in the region and regularly reports on relevant actions taken by ACAFREMIN and other organizations.

It is developed and maintained by the McGill Research Group Investigating Canadian Mining in Latin America (MICLA), a faculty-student research collective based at McGill University in Montréal, Canada.
