China’s Ecuador Embassy occupied in opposition to mining contract [Ecuador]

…[On] March 5th 2012, a group of women…occupied for a few hours the Chinese Embassy in Quito, to reject the signing of a mining contract between the Ecuadorean State and the Chinese company ECSA (EcuaCorriente) [part of Corriente Resources]…Inside the building, a request was presented to Ambassador Yuan Guisen to be transmitted to the company asking it to refrain from signing the contract that would allow large scale copper mining, something new in Ecuador…[saying] that the project would trigger serious damage to watersheds, biodiversity and indigenous peoples’ ancestral territories. In addition…there are doubts about the reputation of the company…[because reports say] that ECSA is involved in many cases of criminalization of the local people. Eight women were arrested by the police and taken into custody, they were released at night time in Quito on 5th March…[Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Corriente Resources and its parent companies, China Railway Constructions & Tongling Nonferrous Metals to respond. The companies did not respond]
