Criminalisation of Social Protest related to Extractive Industries in Latin America - Analysis and Recommendations – June 2011 (also available in ES).

In this document we explore the role that states and companies play in perpetrating and benefiting from criminalisation, explain why this trend is of concern and make recommendations to international institutions concerned with protecting the basic rights of ordinary citizens. This includes the right to protect the environment and contest macroeconomic policies which they do not believe will be to their long-term benefit.
