Guatemala: Xinka people demand that Pan American Silver respect their rights and put an end to the violent legacy of the Escobal mine

The Xinka Parliament presented their pledge in a press conference to the Canadian Company Pan American Silver who bought Tahoe Resources and the Escobal Mine. The project is currently suspended and a proper consultation process has been ordered by the Constitutional Court. The Xinka Parliament asked Pan American Silver shareholders to respect this process and to refrain to reach any contact with the community until the consultation process is done, and accused them of supposedly manipulate and intervene in the consultation process. Business & Human Rights Centre invited Pan American Silver to respond to the allegations, the response is available.
