About the continuity of the colonial heritage: the impact of the British mining company Brazil Iron in the state of Bahia.


This session will explain how the mining sector still operates throughout colonial power relations subjugating the quilombolas communities in the state of Bahia, Brazil. The steel open mine exploited by the british company Brazil Iron pollutes and destroys water, land and air and threatens those villagers opposing its presence with the support of public authorities, unable to make it accountable for its activities.
