On Tuesday 5th May Anglo American (AA) conducted a closed AGM. AA owns equal shares (with BHP and Glancore) in Cerrejon an enormous open cast coal mine. We want to remind AA of a small part of the consequences of their exploitation to nature and humans.

The following are two stories that Indigenous Wayuu and African-descent communities living in La Guajira Colombia, have shared with us about their experience of having the Cerrejon open-cast coal Mine in their territories for more than 30 years.

The first one is about the Afro-descent Community of Tabaco, which was violently displaced 19 years ago and is still waiting for comprehensive compensation. The second story relates to the devastation of water sources in this dry area of Colombia due to the expansion of Cerrejon mine.
