Teitipac. pq Teitipac Declaration available as a PDF download (3 pag.)

The peoples, communities, and organizations that have gathered in the community of Magdalena Teitipac to analyze the impact of the mining industry on the region of the Tlacolula valley in Oaxaca; as well as to share the experiences of resistance of other affected communities and towns by mining projects both in their territory as well as in social issues.

We live at present under an economic and political model based in the “accelerated” extraction of our common goods such as minerals, water, forests, oil, gas, coal, and knowledge, through the plunder and the mercantilism of our ancestral lands.

noeIt’s been almost a month since Noé was stoned to death by unidentified individuals in his hometown of Amatlán de los Reyes in the Mexican state of Veracruz, with no response from the U.S. Embassy in Mexico. Noé had gone out early that morning to gather leaves, seeds, and flowers for the opening ritual of the 10th Anniversary of the Mexican Movement of People Affected by Dams and in Defense of Rivers (MAPDER). MAPDER seeks to protect the rights of communities in the face of an onslaught of hydroelectric dam projects in Mexico. Noé was a craftsman. Through his work he promoted his culture and raised awareness about the destruction of the environment, especially in the mountains of Veracruz.
