TNI is appalled at revelations that the Argentine intelligence services prepared illicit files on our institute and our researchers, mainly Luciana Ghiotto, at the time of the WTO and G20 meetings in Buenos Aires in 2018. TNI has been an observer to UN institutions since 1974 and to the WTO since 2001.
Community members banded together in a show of solidarity, committing to collective ownership and equity, transparency, and direct participation in the development and management of their energy infrastructure. This impressive collective commitment has transformed a once-rural village of just over 3,000 residents in the 1980s into a thriving urban metropolis of more than 40,000 residents today.
TNI turns 40 in 2014 and has received many birthday wishes from social movements, academics, activists, grassroots community groups, journalists, writers and policy makers. We are proud to have worked alongside them in a struggle for a more just world and deeply touched by their praise for our work.
