This publication includes cases of systemic and systematic violation of human rights, environmental rights and the rights of affected peoples in eight countries of the region.

These are struggles described by members of Friends of the Earth Latin America and the Caribbean, which include denunciations, lessons learnt from resistance struggles and concrete proposals to further develop international Human Rights law, from the bottom up, and to dismantle corporate power.

With these proposals, we will mobilize from the local and national level to the international level, following the negotiations of a new binding treaty, which start this year of 2017 with a draft text on the table, in the sphere of an Open ended Intergovernmental Working Group in the United Nations Human Rights Council.
