A massive wound to the heart of 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 Canadian mining giant that plans to open a toxic gold mine in the heart of their sacred Amazon lands! One tribe is facing extinction if this disaster goes ahead -- now grassroots groups are asking for our help!

The mining company is close to getting all its permits -- but the tribes have managed to delay the project through the courts. Now, mounting losses are putting pressure on investors to pull out

This is our moment to strike. 

Experts say the mine's top investor, Agnico Eagle Mines, cares about its international reputation as a sustainability leader. If one million of us call them out for this project, and deliver the petition to shareholders at their annual meeting in weeks, we could be the game-changer to end this insane venture.
