URGENT ACTION: Write to Equinox Gold to Support Community's Closure of Los Filos Mine in Mexico

On September 3, 2020, the Ejido of Carrizalillo (Guerrero, Mexico) revoked its recently-negotiated agreement with Equinox Gold over the company's refusal to address violations of the agreement, and shut down the Los Filos mine. There is serious concern for the wellbeing and safety of the community given the tremendous violence and forced displacement that occurs with shocking frequency in the central part of Guerrero where Canadian mining operations such as Los Filos and others, such as Torex Gold, have been rapidly expanding. Write to Equinox Gold to support the residents of Carizalillo here.
