LAUNCH OF THE FEATURED MAP
"¡Esto no Vale! Isso não Vale! Vale S.A. operations and
ENVJUSTICE PROJECT, ICTA-UAB
On the occasion of the International Action for Rivers 2019
ENVJUSTICE <http://envjustice.org/>- EJAtlas <http://ejatlas.org/>team
at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) at the
Autonomous University of Barcelona releases "¡Esto no Vale! Isso não
Vale! Vale S.A. operations and socio-environmental conflicts"
<https://ejatlas.org/featured/envconflictsvale>a thematic map on
socio-environmental conflicts in the world related to Vale S.A. mining
and infrastructure projects. These include mining exploitation and
tailings dams, such as those that broke in Mariana (2015) and Brumadinho
(Jan 2019) leaving behind hundreds of deaths and irreversibly
contaminating rivers and lands.
The map shows that the mining company is responsible for a large array
of socio-environmental impacts globally. For the international day in
protection of rivers, the research team wishes to contribute to the
global efforts of environmental justice groups to reclaim justice and to
stop corporate impunity. Furthermore, they also urge to reflect on the
wider problems generated by a resource extractivist logic as pushed
forward by large mining companies such as Vale and their political
allies in the pursuit of economic growth and regional development. Such
a model not only accentuates dependencies on primary exports in
countries of the Global South, thereby deteriorating their balances and
terms of trade, but also unevenly distributes the cost of environmental
destruction while affected communities continue to face myriad
injustices and a constant risk of such dramatic tragedies.
