Stop this toxic gold mine in the Amazon!

To the investors of Belo Sun's Volta Grande project in the Amazon and their shareholders:

Your commitment to sustainability is meaningless if you invest in projects like Belo Sun's mining project in Volta Grande, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. As citizens of the world, we call upon you to use your power to withdraw all your investments from this crazy venture, which threatens to inflict irreversible damage to the environment and the local indigenous communities. It is not too late to make it right.

Brave indigenous tribes are fighting a billion-dollar mining company planning to open a toxic gold mine -- that would surround their sacred lands! One of the tribes is facing extinction if this disaster goes ahead, and they just asked for our help!

The Belo Sun Mining Company is close to getting all the permits they need to open this dirty mine -- but the tribes have bravely managed to delay the project through the courts! Now, mounting losses are putting pressure on investors to pull out.

This our moment to strike.

Experts say the main investor, Agnico Eagle Mines, cares about its international reputation as a sustainability leader -- and a million voices demanding they pull out of this project could be the game-changer to end this insane venture.

Add your name now to stop this toxic gold mine in the Amazon -- we'll deliver the petition to shareholders in the middle of their annual meeting!
