The Cerro de Oro Hydroelectric Plant: A Latent Threat

In partnership with Accountability Counsel, we produced two short videos that demystify the process of using international accountability mechanisms to confront multinational corporations that threaten human rights. Both videos use the case of a hydroelectric plant in Oaxaca, Mexico to illustrate the process by which Accountability Counsel partners with communities to research the financing the behind projects and demand justice and accountability. This video was used by the community members who participated in the process, and who shared the film within Mexico in order to warn their fellow citizens about vulnerability to similar projects, and educate them about their rights.
