London, UK. 17 October, 2019. Frontline human rights defenders from Chile, Brazil and Colombia join climate justice activists from London Mining Network and War on Want in protesting outside the AGM of British-Australian mining company BHP at the QEII Centre against the company’s destructive mining practices which are contributing to climate breakdown across the globe. In recent months, there has been an upsurge in death threats and assassination attempts directed at human rights defenders in Latin America opposed to mega-mining.
