Following Chile’s social upheaval of October 2019, the country is facing a historic constitutional change. So far, Chile has been ruled by an inherited constitution enforced in 1980 by a civic/military dictatorship, imposing a neoliberal political model that has degraded people's lives and the environment throughout the country. The current Chilean extractive system was possible thanks to this constitution, together with multiple institutions and laws based on it.

One of the most critical environmental impacts is the one produced by large-scale mining extractivism. In this context, the relationship between British mining companies and the exploitation of natural resources in Chile is very close: companies such as Anglo American, BHP, and Antofagasta Minerals are directly responsible for the danger and degradation of health and livelihoods faced by thousands of people across the country.

The overall call for a new society and a new Constitution raised by the current Chilean social movement includes the demand for protection of our environment, the right to water, an anti-extractive model, and the recognition of indigenous communities. Thus, we would like to open a debate, together with amazing environmental leaders, about the current and future impacts of transnational (particularly British) mining companies on Chilean territories and communities, and how a new constitution could help us facing such impacts, shedding light for a future post-extractivist scenario where human and non-human rights are equally protected.

This event is organized by London Mining Network in partnership with Asamblea Chilena en Londres, Latin American Bureau, and Ciudad Común
