Defensa y Conservación Ecológica de Intag (DECOIN)

$2,500 to support a mobilization to Quito by communities impacted by large-scale mines in Ecuador in an effort to revoke illegally granted concessions with primary participation coming from the Intag area in the northwest of the country which is home to a biologically diverse and unique cloud forest ecosystem and where communities have stopped two previous attempts by multinational mining companies to develop a major open-pit copper mine and are currently fighting to do so again.
