Der US-Konzern Newmont Mining Gold, der größte Goldproduzent der Erde, will in Peru, in Conga Gold fördern. Bauern in der Region fürchten, dass durch die Goldmine die Bewässerung der Felder in der Umgebung gefährdet wird, da das Gold unter vier Teichen gelagert ist. Bei ihren Protesten starben drei Menschen

Lima – Drei Menschen sind bei Protesten gegen das umstrittene Bergbauprojekt von Conga in Peru umgekommen. Beim Versuch der Protestbewegung, das Regierungsgebäude der nordperuanischen Provinz Celendín einzunehmen, starben am Dienstag drei Demonstranten, bestätigte die lokale Staatsanwaltschaft dem Rundfunksender RPP. 20 Menschen seien verletzt worden, unter ihnen zwei Polizisten und fünf Soldaten. Die Regierung des Präsidenten Ollanta Humala hat nach den Zwischenfällen in Celendín und zwei weiteren Provinzen des Departments Cajamarca den Notstand ausgerufen.

In Conga, rund 800 Kilometer nördlich von Lima, will der US-Konzern Newmont Mining Gold fördern. Bauern in der Region fürchten, dass durch die Goldmine die Bewässerung der Felder in der Umgebung gefährdet wird, da das Gold unter vier Teichen gelagert ist. Der nach eigenen Angaben größte Goldproduzent der Welt betreibt bereits die nahe gelegene Goldmine Yanacocha, die größte in Lateinamerika. In Conga sollen während der Bauarbeiten bis zu der für 2017 geplanten Inbetriebnahme 5.000 bis 7.000 Menschen Arbeit finden. Das Investitionsvolumen betrage 2,4 Milliarden Dollar. (APA, 4.7.2012)

About ottwf

The capitalistic and imperialistic system and its systematic aims: profit and power over others, still dominates our world and not the aims of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as 1948 agreed! After the world-economic-crisis after 1929 and the following World-War the world hat decided with agreeing the Universal Declaration of Human rights, to create a new world order; conflicts should be solved with peaceful means, not nations and their power, but the dignity of human beings around the world should be the aim of the policies and the economy, of every state and the community of states. But soon after the end of the war, when the victims and destruction were forgotten, all continued as before, with all risks, we had seen before. The split in rich an poor is getting bigger and bigger. We also overuse our global environment already, even if the big majority of mankind still lives in poverty! We are not victims, this world is men-made and be changed from men and women! It will be possible, if those, who do not want or serve (because of system-pressure) profits first, but want for themselves and everybody a life in human dignity unite and develop in a global base-democratic movement a common vision for our world, and learn, how to make this vision real. We need for it a big empowerment of many, many common men and women and their activities. Our chances are because of new communication technologies, of common languages, of the level of education and the mixture of people from different backgrounds better then ever. The occupy-movement is a good start for such a global movement. We support it and try to contribute to its success! We choose news and make comments and so try to unite people for an Occupy-Think-Tank: Its tasks: creating a news-network, self-education, working on global-reform programs and learning to organize projects for those, who are suffering. Join us, so that we can build teams for these aims for all subjects and countries as a base for the unification. We have Wan(n)Fried(en) in our name, because it means When peace and it is a modification of the name of the town our base is, in Wanfried, a small town in the middle of Germany, where we can use a former factory for our activities.
