Mexico: "A Mine, a Movement and a Town Divided"

"Since Vancouver-based silver and gold mining company Fortuna set up shop in a small town in southern Mexico in 2005, violent attacks have left four local residents dead and many more wounded."

"Fortuna has not been charged, nor is it the subject of any criminal investigation. However, similar violence has broken out at other locations where Canadian-owned mining companies -- an astonishing 75 per cent of all such companies world-wide -- operate."

Liam Barrington-Bush and Jen Wilton report for the Vancouver Tyee September 30, 2013.
