A moment of your time… Help El Salvador

Oceana Gold sues El Salvador

Some of you may know that James’ wife Layla is Salvadoran. Recently it has come to my attention through the sumofus website that an Australian mining company OceanaGold is suing the government of El Salvador for $300 million because it will not grant a gold mining permit because of concerns it will contaminate the remaining fresh water supply in the country. OceanaGold needs to respect the democratic process in El Salvador.

What can you do?

I’m just one voice but the beauty of sumofus is that we can all join together against corporate bullying such as this. Please take a moment to read and sign the sumofus petitions.

None of my articles are officially endorsed by James Bamford. I just felt compelled to write this and share.
