The Planned Destruction of Mountains and Villages is a Crime against Nature and Humanity
Since 21/11/2023 until 08/12/2023, UMLP comrades took the streets of 11 different villages, near Chaves city, distributing and debating ICOR call for the “International Day of Environmental Struggle” and our resolution “Resistance and rebellion are a must against mining fever! Radical forms of resistance against Fortescue and its "Mariola" mine are justified! The Defence of Villages and Hills is an Act of Self-Defence!” regarding the building of an openpit lithium mine, done in defiance of the will of the people that live there, by multinacional mining company Fortescue.
Our action was done during the multinational's briefing sessions in those villages “confronting the monster face-to-face and standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the small farmers and rural masses against it.” and confronting its imperialist ecologism arguments with the only real alternative, Revolution for True Socialism.
ICOR resolution was also added to our website and sent to all our contacts in Portugal.
The slogans were:
"Resistance and Rebellion against the Mining Multinationals!", "Save the Environment from the Profit Economy!" or "The Planned Destruction of Mountains and Villages is a Crime against Nature and Humanity"
