Inmet Mining Corporation want to turn this :


into this: 

CBC has just done an excellent well balanced documentary on this and other Canadian mining projects in Panama. The following quote comes from the interactive map the CBC has included in their documentary. 

‘Over the last decade the overall number of Canadian mines in development in Latin America has varied between 1,500 and 1,100. Of these close to 85% are prospective projects under exploration and development. In any given year there are around 200 mines actually in operation across the continent.

The 84 conflicts we list here are a tally of all social and environmental conflicts involving a Canadian mining project since the late 1990s. Some of these have been settled or the project has been suspended or cancelled.’

I strongly recommend exploring this map and watching the documentary. It just might make you want to take action against these corporations and the Canadian Government that aids and abets their genocidal and ecocidal work.
