Oswaldo Lumbi


Oswaldo Lumbi is a farmer of Las Naves, province of Bolívar, Ecuador, and environmental human rights defender. Since 2017, he has actively worked in the promotion of the protection of water and land of his territory against the negative effects caused by the presence of Curimining mining company, subsidiary of Canadian companies Adventus Mining Corporation and Salazar Resources Corporation.

Due to his active work of defence of human rights, Oswaldo Lumbi has been constantly crimnalized, being condemned to prison in March of 2024 for the crime of illicit association despite the lack of solid evidence against him, which has limited his work and affected him at a public and private level.
