James’s latest piece features a demonstration by thousands from San Rafael Las Flores, Santa Rosa, and nearby communities gathered in solidarity to protest the mining project. Locals demanded a consultation, or plebiscite, to be carried out to establish the people’s will regarding the mine. Days before the local mayor removed several members from the Special Commission regarding the Consultation process.
