22 October 2021 Human Rights
A 46-strong group of countries across the wider European region has agreed to establish a new legally binding mechanism that would protect environmental defenders, the UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) said on Friday.
“I remain deeply concerned by the targeting of environmental activists”, said Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, welcoming the rapid response mechanism as “an important contribution to help advance my Call to Action for Human Rights”.
As the first ever internationally-agreed tool to safeguard environmental defenders, it marks an important step in upholding the universal right to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment – as recognized by the Human Rights Council earlier this month.
Approximately 18 - 20 million impoverished artisanal and small-scale gold (ASG) miners all largely having undiagnosed mercury poisonings in ~ 80 countries dangerously toil daily to produce ~20% of the world’s gold supply using mercury, a deadly neurotoxin to make gold for our jewellery, our iPads, our iPhones, computers, and other e-devices releasing 2,000 tonnes of mercury to our environment annually.
The morbid irony is the same mercury used to extract the gold is polluting the air we all breathe, contaminating our drinking water, polluting the Oceans we swim, poisoning the fish we consume causing health issues, and global biodiversity destruction.
A Solution; the use of "manipueira" bitter cassava plant-based extract, an option to replace mercury use and profit proudly owning sustainably reclaimed tailings gold, a globally wasted commodity transformed into Limited Edition artisanally crafted one-ounce gold coins or ingots (95% 22k).

To make a sustainable change, we have initiated Climate Action in Ecuador’s Portovelo-Zaruma mining district 1,200 meters high up in the Amazon Andes where 87 whole ore mercury amalgamation Chilean processing centers situated along one-square mile on the Calera and Amarillo riverbanks are collectively responsible for the annual discharge of 1.9 million tonnes of acidic toxic tailings surface sludge poured directly into the rivers to empty 350 Km west into the Pacific Ocean.
Support our climate action initiative to prototype the world’s 1st 60 tonnes/day mercury free sustainable processing center using a cyanogenic plant-based extract manipueira to leach more gold safely from ore than by using mercury amalgamation.
