AngloGold Ashanti, a South-African mining giant, has plans to start mining in Cajamarca, Colombia.

Locals are protesting this via referendum (consulta popular), protests and public actions. Catapa is

helping them to lobby against the arrival of the mining facility because of the high environmental

damages and danger for health that this would cause.
