People’s Sovereignty vs. Impunity Inc

Aguiar and Vargas, 2015

This paper exemplifies several articles describing different struggles that have occurred between transnational corporations and people fighting for their rights. One of them is the Pacific Rim OceanaGold case currently taking place against El Salvador. The Australian-Canadian mining corporation is threatening to start extractive mining activities in El Salvador, and launched a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the government of El Salvador. However, Salvadorans are standing up against the extractive mining company, defending the environment, water and their right to life.
