Hacked e-mails reveal Mexico manipulating climate change facts, destroying Indian sacred lands

The hacked e-mails of Mexico’s mining industry of Camimex exposed by Anonymous reveal that the government of Mexico is manipulating climate change facts in order to protect coal mining and other dirty industries from taxation.

The e-mails expose the government of Mexico is engaged in the corporate rape of the environment, with total disregard for the air, water and land of Mexico. The e-mails reveal there is no consideration or protection, by Mexico or mining corporations, for Indigenous sacred lands and ceremonial places.

In the Camimex member e-mails, First Majestic Silver Mining of Canada is exposed in the state of Durango, Mexico. The company is now targeting the sacred lands of the Wixarika, Huicholes, with silver mining. The Wixarika's sacred place is where Wixarika pray for all mankind to keep the world in order and balance.

The hacked e-mails reveal the destruction to lands in Sonora, Mexico.

O’odham, who live on both sides of the Arizona/Mexico border, are fighting Silver Scott Mines, based in South Carolina in the US, which has targeted their ceremonial community of Quitovac, a place of annual pilgrimage, with gold mining. The mining of Quitovac, about 30 miles south of the Arizona/Mexico border in O’odham territory, would destroy the land and poison the water.

Further, the emails reveal that the University of Guanajuato is assisting mining corporations that are now destroying Mexico and Indigenous sacred lands. The university offers courses which promote and secure mining by professor Juan Jose Cervantes Silva. The university's promotion of mining also reveals the role of US universities in the exploitation and destruction of Indigenous lands, since Cervantes was trained at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

The University of Arizona has taken a lead in the militarization of Indigenous border lands, by designing drones and offering courses that target people of color on the border. Further the University of Arizona has taken the lead in the destruction of Native sacred lands in Arizona, including placing telescopes on sacred Mount Graham over the objection of Apaches and other Native Americans. Further the university has engaged in global spying of activists in its global cyber spy program and partnered with both Homeland Security and the US Border Patrol in its programs.

Anonymous hacked Mexico’s mining industry in defense of Indigenous Peoples struggling to protect their sacred lands, and their fellow campesinos who are victims of Mexico’s mining industry. Anonymous sent a clear message to the global mining industry targeting Indigenous Peoples and their lands with abuse, violence and exploitation, that their private communications will no longer be private.

Anonymous hactivists said they were robbing the e-mails because the mining industry is robbing the miners.

“You only took out our minerals, exploiting our miner brothers,” said the statement of Anonymous posted online. So far, 730 MB of e-mail accounts and the data base of Camimex were exposed.

Anonymous said the mining companies in Mexico and the mining syndicates are together “only to steal our minerals.” Anonymous said the value is $200,000,000 and miners are forced to work in extremely dangerous conditions. Anonymous said the leader Napoleon Gomez Urrutia “stole more than 55 million of dollars,” which was for mine security. It resulted in the tragedy of “Pasta de Conchos,” where 65 miners died due to the insufficient security measures, Anonymous said.
