Good evening, I am writing from Jujuy Argentina, I am representing the Kolla People of Jujuy Province, natives throughout the Andean region of South America, and I heard about the resistance and struggle with respect to surface mining in its Territories.
I endorse their struggle because it is the biggest problem we have, the original people of Jujuy, especially for the Kolla People. I send lots of hugs, and a lot of strength so they can go out winners.

Me Adhiero a su lucha porque es el problema mas grande que tenemos los pueblos originarios de Jujuy, especialmente en el Pueblo Kolla, les mando muchos abrazos, y mucha fuerza para que puedan salir vencedores.
