La socialización de Mesoamérica Resiste ayudó a conectar el contexto local con la amenaza de la empresa minera Anglo gold Ashanti y la mina de La Colosa con el modelo extractivista que existe en el mundo entero. Actualmente la aprobación de la mina está paralizada ya que a finales del año pasado el Consejo de Estado revocó la opción de consulta popular que se iba realizar sobre la mina, hasta el momento no han habido avances de ningún lado. Fue una visita demasiado corta pero como siempre, esperamos la próxima oportunidad de poder ir a compartir y polinizar con todx Tolimense que luche por defender su territorio y el río Yuma.
After sharing with the youth in Pavas we took a swing through Ibague, Tolima. It is the first time a bee has had the chance to come to Tolima a pollinate the graphics. The invitation was made to participate in a Social Ecology educational and cultural activity organized by the Desalambrando process and in preparations for the upcoming Carnival for Life. There was silk screening of t-shirts with an image that said "water is worth more than gold", musical performances and a Mesoamérica Resiste presentation.
They sharing of Mesoamérica Resiste helped relate the threat of the mining company Anglo Gold Ashanti and the mine of La Colosa within the context of the global extractivism model. Currently, as of late last year the approval of the mine has been paralyzed ever since the State Council revoked the possibility of a popular referendum that was in the process of happening regarding whether the mine would happen or not. Currently no side has had any advances. It was an all too short visit and hopefully next time we hope to continue to share and pollinate with the Tomlimenses that defend their territory and the Yuma river.
