          Abstract

          RESUMEN: En la última década han florecido nociones sobre sumak kawsay y suma qamaña ‘buen vivir’ en Ecuador y Bolivia, respectivamente, al calor de los procesos participativos e innovadoras de las nuevas constituciones políticas. Estas se unen con teorizaciones hechas en otras partes de América Latina, como son el lekil kuxlejal en Chiapas, y el incipiente tb’anil qanq’ib’il entre los maya-mames de Guatemala. Simultáneamente, se señala el auge de la industria extractivista, con alarmantes niveles de depredación. El artículo identifica algunos cuestionamientos del desarrollo occidental y explora las diversas nociones del buen vivir, para luego resaltar la manera en que una mina de oro a cielo abierto, en Guatemala, está destruyendo el ambiente, el tejido social, familiar y comunitario, y muchos elementos locales del buen vivir en San Miguel Ixtahuacán. Recoge las percepciones de mujeres maya-mames que resisten la mina.

          ABSTRACT: The notions of sumak kawsay and suma qamaña (living well/‘buen vivir’) have flourished in the last decade in Ecuador and Bolivia, respectively, in the heat of the participatory and innovative processes brought about by the new political constitutions. These notions have joined processes of theorizing from other Latin America regions, like lekil kuxlejal in Chiapas, and incipient tb’anil qanq’ib’il among the Maya-Mam people from Guatemala. Simultaneously alarming levels of pillage have accompanied the boom of the extraction industry. This article identifies some critiques of Western development and explores different notions of living well/buen vivir to then highlight how open pit mining for gold in Guatemala is destroying the environment, the social fabric, families and communities, as well as many local elements regarding buen vivir in San Miguel Ixtahuacan. It collects perceptions from Maya-Mam women who are resisting the mine.

            Indigenous Rights, Resistance, and the Law: Lessons from a Guatemalan Mine

            Using a case study of a controversial mine in an indigenous area of Guatemala, this article explores the transnational dynamics of development and regulation of large-scale extractive industry projects in the developing world. It examines the roles played in the Marlin mine dispute by national law, international law, international financial institutions, and corporate social responsibility. It concludes that these legal regimes have a role in protecting human rights but have not addressed the fundamental questions of democratic governance raised by this case.
