One year ago, the Guatemalan Government agreed to suspend operations at the Marlin Gold Mine. This suspension would help local communities who are suffering under violence and the destruction of their livelihoods. But a year has passed, and the mine is still up and running. International pressure on the government could help change this. Send a letter now
