In the National Interest? Criminalization of Land and Environment Defenders in the Americas

This discussion paper is a joint effort between the International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) and MiningWatch Canada, with important contributions from several individuals who have accompanied the process who have experience in the extractive industry, civil liberties, human rights, law, and public policy. The goal of this initiative is to make connections between Canadian mining interests and the growing trend of criminalization against dissent and social protest involving land and environment defenders in the Americas from north to south.
