oneworld.net / Oxfam America Mining Communities on the March: "To address these problems, a network of communities affected by mining was formed, the Coordinadora Nacional de Comunidades Afectadas por la Minerķa (the National Coordinator of Communities Affected by Mining,) known by its Spanish acronym CONACAMI. In 1999 CONACAMI established a national network of 16 regional groups to document illegal dumping of mining waste on communal lands and the expropriation of lands from indigenous groups, and to teach regional representatives to advocate on their own behalf. Indigenous communities in particular have special rights to be consulted about mining projects, which are protected under international law."
